Weeding and tree removal on Waimahanga Walkway

The Team from Whangarei District Council

We're removing some dead or non-native trees along the Waimahanga walkway (Boswell's Track) to make room for native species to replace it. Specifically, our team is removing wattles, flame trees, bamboo, casuarinas, woolly nightshade and coastal banksia.

Due to prolific flowering, seed dispersal and vigorous growth, banksia trees often compete with maturing pohutukawa while banksia seedlings compete with regenerating natives. We're planning for a staged removal of the banksia here over the next few years, allowing for existing trees and planning plantings to replace them. This season, our contractors will also plant pohutukawa where gaps have been created.

See our Waimahanga Walkway page for more information including access and history:

Pictures below show examples of unwanted tree species that can "crowd out" natives, making it harder for them to get established.
