Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – November 2009.

This is a working relationship with the City of Cape Town and the Zandvlei Trust.

There were still some beautiful indigenous flowers growing amoungst the shrubs. Previous wood cut down has been removed by persons unknown. The cuttings generated from the Port Jackson saplings have collapsed to very little dry material. Bert and Bowen cut a seed stem from the one sisal plant to stop it seeding before we left.

The wind was blowing from the west with clouds causing intermittent sun and drizzle at times, which made for pleasant working conditions. Sue and Chris went over the area we had covered to tackle seedlings and the odd copsing which has occurred. Bert and Declan cut a few branches from the gum trees which were overhanging the the road. We have nearly got to the area where the dense stands of exotic vegetation growth is. There is evidence of vagrants living in the bush. We had one parading up and down the side walk shouting at us for “cutting down the trees”.
A pretty Morea neglecta flowering.
