A new tool to enable the public to help fight wilding conifers, one of New Zealand’s most invasive species, has been created by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).
Wilding Watch can be used to find new infestations of wilding conifers as well as upload photos. In the wrong place the pine trees can take over landscapes threatening productive farmland, native ecosystems, tourism opportunities and our national economy.
The app can be found here.
