Dun Mountain Programme

Project Overview

Nelson City Council, as part of their Nelson Nature programme, engaged Kaitiaki o Ngahere in 2017 to survey over 800 ha in the ultramafic belt above Nelson looking for pest plant species, primarily heath, gorse, and wilding pines.

Following this, a comprehensive report was prepared that now informs the ongoing pest plant control works in the area.

Currently, we do annual control at a number of sites, and pest plant populations are significantly reduced as the plan is implemented.
