Protecting our precious places

Managing your covenant

Tradescantia flumenensis (common names tradescantia, wandering Willy or river spiderwort) can carpet a forest’s floor,  preventing seeds from reaching the ground and germinating or making survival of native seedlings difficult because of smothering. Eventual forest collapse and loss of biodiversity occurs when mature trees die and there are no seedlings surviving to regenerate the forest.

The impact of introduced animals on New Zealand's native biodiversity is well known. Weeds also impact heavily on the health of ecosystems and species and the appearance of landscapes.

Pest and weed control (and good fences) are all needed to safeguard the special features protected by covenants.

This section provides information and tips to help you manage your covenant.
