THE GREYTON MOUNTAIN PROJECT
The face of the Riviersonderend mountains overlooking Greyton has some of the most beautiful fynbos in the Western Cape. However, in recent years pines have been returning to the highest areas of the mountain, and have been steadily spreading from West to East, with now over 100,000 mature trees. Wild Restoration has segmented the areas into high, medium and low density. Working with a group of volunteers, Wild Restoration is already making significant progress on clearing these pines. Additional volunteers are invited to help cut down the established pines as well as pull out saplings. We estimate that in less than 50 people days, the most critical medium-density area of 20,000 trees can be cleared, which would significant stop the spread of the trees. Click here to get involved.
