Willow and Alder Guide

(Published on 3rd June 2015)

So, you've got willows or alders on your land. Maybe you like the look of them and feel they are performing an important role, or perhaps you see them as a pest and want to get rid of them? What should you do?

If you are involved in the management of willows and alders you will be pleased to hear that NZ Landcare Trust and Waikato Raupatu River Trust have released a guide dedicated to unravelling this potentially confusing subject.

'Willows and Alders: Best practice guidelines for Willow and Alder control for riparian restoration for the Waikato' draws upon the experience of a range of people with a good working knowledge of Willow and Alder management, including wetland ecologists, flood management experts, Regional and District Councils, DOC, CRI scientists, industry, river users and Waikato-Tainui.
