Tuff Crater F&B Planting

On Friday the plants were delivered to Tuff from the Kaipatiki project  by a few  hardy volunteers with a couple of trailers ready for the Forest and Bird North Shore branch planting today.

 It was a cold start at 8am but gradually more people arrived until we counted around 50 and then the  sun came out and many hands made light work of planting down from the ridge in fairly difficult terrain particularly amongst the previously  treated dying pampas grass clumps.

Hopefully these native plants will take over from that invasive plant and transform this side  of the crater.
