WAIMAKARIRI ECOLOGICAL AND LANDSCAPE RESTORATION ALLIANCE

Wilding pine trees spreading across the upper Waimakariri basin are threatening the unique landscape and native flora & fauna of the area.

The front of this spread has been brought back over 4km by the concerted efforts of many enthusiastic volunteers. An opportunity exists over the next 3 to 5 years for all parties to work together to get on top of the wilding issue.

WELRA has been formed by the Canterbury Community to provide leadership and co-ordination of wilding control work before reseeding over wide areas makes the elimination of wilding pine trees from the Waimakariri Basin unaffordable.

This website was created to keep you up to date on our progress towards eliminating wilding trees from the Waimakariri basin, and to let you know how you can be involved in wilding tree control activities.
