On Sunday we cleared 60m through a solid wall of barberry and gorse to link onto the top of the Haggis Basher track. Big thanks to Tim, Pete, Jason, Alec and Adrian for pitching in. There's a bit of benching and a couple of corners to cut in next weekend and the Haggis Basher will be 130m taller.
This time we started at the Haggis Basher and worked our way up hill. I got on the chain saw, Tim got on the scrub bar and Pete started clearing the slash.
We basically aimed to take the track between any natives that were coming through. After we've got the line sorted, we'll push the barberry back a bit more and plant the flaxes that we removed from up the top. Flax should keep the barberry back a bit and save on maintenance (and it's not as prickly).
We weren't quite sure where the track was going to go as you couldn't even push through parts of it, but given we were just clearing weeds we couldn't really go wrong.
