We spray gorse on an ongoing basis at both Maungataniwha and Pohokura, as well as on DOC land adjacent to Pohokura. 

We also target pampas and buddleia, and have removed cotoneaster from the Te Hoe Valley.

Forest Lifeforce Restoration Trust - Predator control, plant propagation, forest restoration and species recovery are all part of its remit and comprise the bulk of its activity. Flagship projects include the Maungataniwha Kiwi Project, fast carving out a name for itself as one of the most prolific and successful kiwi conservation initiatives.
