Wilding conifer control
 

DOC will work on wilding conifer control by helicopter from 25 January – 9 February 2020. The park is open as usual, but visitors must not enter areas where the helicopter is operating. Areas for treatment are between Sandy Creek and Blue Road at the northern end of Beebys Ridge. See our map for these locations: Map of wilding conifer spray locations We’ll use a metsulphuron-methyl based herbicide on individual trees, applied with low-pressure. It’s unlikely anyone on the ground would be in contact with the herbicide, which will be safe once dry.
