Pest plants

Updated 9 October 2017 9:57am

Greater Wellington has a pest plant plan for each forest and park that it manages. These plans were prepared after surveying the pest plant infestations in each area and prioritising them to determine the highest priorities for control. At least 55 different pest plants are currently being controlled on Greater Wellington land including:

  • Boneseed and evergreen buckthorn in Queen Elizabeth Park
  • Holly and tradescantia in Battle Hill bush remnant
  • Old man’s beard in Belmont Regional Park and the Akatarawa Forest
  • Climbing asparagus and Japanese honeysuckle in East Harbour Regional Park
  • Buddleia in Wainuiomata/Orongorongo Water Collection Area and the Pakuratahi Forest
