Ecological Restoration of Lowry Rd Gully and Wetland
Tītoki Landcare was engaged by a landowner in Bombay to assist with their ecological restoration project following the completion of the enrichment planting.
Tītoki Landcare has since helped weed management and predator control as part of the restoration of 2.2 ha of wetland and gully embankments on their property.
We now have an arrangement with the landowner for monthly site visits for ongoing weed management and predator control.
Matakanohi Reserve Ecological Rehabilitation
Tītoki Landcare were engaged to undertake restorative actions within Matakanohi 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.
Mangaonua Gully Weed Management
Tītoki Landcare has been assisting Friends of Manga O with weed management since June 2021.
Our work has primarily focussed on skirting Japanese honeysuckle off 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 to 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, stakeholder engagement, and weed management.
Beale St Gully Ecological Management
Tītoki Landcare is managing the ecological mitigation works associated with the construction of an apartment building in Hamilton East. This includes all management works related to vegetation, bats, lizards, and birds.
The project involves restoring 3000 sqm of gully into native vegetation over the next four years and then ongoing maintenance to ensure the area continues to develop towards a high-value native forest.
Seeleys Gully Weed Management
Tītoki Landcare have been helping with weed management in an area of Seeleys Gully planned for planting in 2022.
We have been working in the gully clearing ivy, treating privets, bear’s breeches, locust trees, spraying tradescantia and ehrharta, and more.
Wilton Road Forest Restoration
Tītoki Landcare has been working with a landowner in Tatuanui to reconstruct an area of lowland kahikatea forest on their property.
An adjacent site was subject to a channel redesign in 2020, and associated replanting of wetland vegetation. Tītoki Landcare has joined in the next phase of the project to restore the drier banks and terraces in kahikatea forest.
The landowner has the goal of having Australasian bittern inhabit the site but also to provide the first local example of such a project to other landowners in the district.
Aldridge Road Wetland Restoration
Tītoki Landcare has been working with a landowner in Hunua to restore an area of bushland on their property.
The bushland has been unmanaged for several decades but was previously planted with exotic trees. Now a canopy of exotic trees covers an understory dominated by native trees, shrubs, and ferns.
The bushland is home to multiple species of threatened native animals including kākā and NZ dabchick.
