Tree Privet Ligustrum lucidum

Date

Description

stump in centre
Was about 3m H prior to intervention.
no longer any sign of life - after manually suppression throughout June 2018-19 by partial breaking of branches, leaf stripping and removal of new buds on trunk.

The partially-broken trunk's top half was eventually hanging limp, and was cut off for aesthetic reasons.

With mapou and totara, possibly planted c. 1999, bordering large expanse of mown kikuyu

Japanese Honeysuckle Lonicera japonica

Date

September 22, 2020 03:34 PM NZST

Description

regrowth on stump broken or cut since Oct 2018, maybe several times.

Vigorous leafy stem grown in last few days or weeks beside harakeke on steep clay bank, both of which it previously had a network throughout, among dense Cape honey Flower stems to 3-4mL, and blackberry. All species manually controlled, with diminishing amounts of regrowth in subsequent seasons.
Today this stem was the sole one emerging from a woody stump. The stump was pulled in hopes of uprooting it but it was very decayed and brittle, and broke near the base.

the base was then broken pulled, and broke without completely uprooting.

The condition of the stump suggests this might be the last intervention required on this one.

No other regrowth observed recently here on the mid- bank. Can't remember when Iast found regrowth on other parts of this bank.

Tradescantia in staged manual control, retained to retain soil moisture during prolonged SMD; Haloragis erecta in centre has been released 2-3 ties and is increasing in area. Tradescantia can be further reduced as alternate ground cover arises.

seedling on clay bank bordering FTZ, above surviving kawakawa, with Verbena incompta, a little Tradescantia (retained for moisture) and some moss developing on the bank bared by shrub/vine weed removal in Oct-Dec 2018

Image two shows context, with the grey branch being the karamu that leaned over this bank before it was hit by the falling Flame tree (remaining in background, still live of course but pruned as much as possible to release native vegetation )
