Kingsley Gully Ecological Restoration

The Kingsley Gully project is a collaboration with Waipā District Council, the Cambridge Tree Trust, Ngāti Koroki Kahukura, Predator Free Cambridge, and local residents.

Over 7,500 plants were planted in the gully in the late 90s and early 2000s but weeds are now a serious threat to the gully’s vegetation.

Lowry Road Wetland and Gully Restoration

Tītoki Landcare was engaged by the landowner following the completion of the enrichment planting to undertake the weed and predator control work as part of the restoration of 2.2 ha of wetland and gully embankments on their property for the purposes of an Environmental lot subdivision.

We now have an arrangement with the landowner to visit the site once a month to continue with ongoing weed management and predator control.

Mangaonua Gully Weed Management

Tītoki Landcare has been assisting the Hamilton City Council and Friends of Manga O with weed management since June 2021.

Our work has primarily focussed on skirting Japanese honeysuckle of native trees, shrubs, and tree ferns but has also included clearing tracks, spraying pampas, drilling and treating privets, and more.

Morrinsville River Walk Ecological Restoration

Tītoki Landcare has helped local restoration enthusiasts and the Matamata Piako District Council improve the ecological and biodiversity values of the bush reserve along the Morrinsville River Walk.

To date, we have provided a range of services including the identification of management zones and priority actions, site preparations for community planting days, and stakeholder engagement.

Matakinohi Reserve Ecological Rehabilitation

Tītoki Landcare were engaged by Hamilton City Council to undertake restorative actions within Matakinohi Reserve on the Banks of the Waikato River.

Tradescantia and ehrharta grass had become abundant within the area following the clearance of vegetation so we carried out a primary treatment before replanting the area with native plants. We’re now carrying out ongoing weed management and plant maintenance over the area.

Seeleys Gully Weed Management

Hamilton City Council approached Tītoki to assist with weed management in an area of Seeleys Gully planned for planting in 2022. When COVID-19 restrictions have allowed, we have been working in the gully clearing ivy and treating privets, bear’s breeches, locust trees and more.

Thames Coromandel Forestry SNA assessments

Tītoki Landcare has been assisting Bluewattle Ecology to finalise the Thames-Coromandel fSNA dataset.

Kahikatea Forest Green Wheel Assessments

Our staff have been involved with field validation of the recently developed Kahikatea Forest Green Wheel in remnant kahikatea stands around Waikato.
