More pleas to stop weed

May 9th, 2019 | By

A renewed plea for locals to help eradicate a horrible weed that is invading the area has been made.

In early 2017, local Ele Duncan urged residents to be on the look out for Yellow Bristle Grass and now the Tamahere Community Committee has joined the call.

It is becoming an invasive problem for farmers and is in Tamahere verges where the Waikato District Council does not spray, TCC said at its recent meeting.

Plea to stop weed invader

Mar 7th, 2017 | By

A horrible weed is invading our district and local Ele Duncan makes the plea for more people to look out for it and eradicate it before it spreads further.

It’s Yellow Bristle Grass and is a prolific seeder, says Ele.

“It spreads rapidly along the roadsides, in particular, as roadside mowing spreads the seeds as do birds. The expressway through Tamahere is thick with it and it’s spreading around other roads fast.”
