• Problem Weeds and treatment techniques!

    A number of seriously problematic weed types are evident within the Nangarin Estate, both on private and Community lands. Their ability to spread rapidly and distribute widely, due to their effective seed dispersal capabilities, are major reasons why residents need to act quickly to effectively eradicate these environmentally damaging weeds. Many of the weeds are toxic and suitable protective clothing and accessories should be used during treatment.

    Below are links to pdf information sheets for the major weed types that may assist residents in both identifying and treating invasive weeds:

  • Nangarin Flora Report by CPR

     This report covers a site visit at the Nangarin Landcare site in the Southwest of Sydney near Picton. The Landcare sites are in and around Nangarin Vineyard Estate. The estate is accessed off Barkers Lodge Road and bounded by Long Gully hydroline to the north and Stone Quarry Creek to the east and south.

    The woodland onsite is a mix of Cumberland Plain Woodland (CPW), Shale Sandstone Transition Forest (SSTF) and Riparian Woodland. There is a wide variety of native flora species in the Estate’s remnant bushland and the volunteers have done a great job of improving their local landscape. Each area has varying degrees of woody and annual weeds but also an array of insect and bird life.
