    Verge Clearing

    Kloof Conservancy has a team working one week per month clearing verges of IAPs – this work is paid for by Kloof Conservancy using funds raised from various fund raising activities. The work is done in conjunction with eThekwini Municipality who have endorsed and support the project.

     Gum Clearing

    During 2012 Kloof Conservancy initiated a project to remove invasive alien gum trees from the verges and private properties along Kloof Falls Road.  The project was co-ordinated by Stephen Nicholson and Dusty Donnelly. The cutting down of the trees was done by a contractor – Guy De Charmoy – who used the proceeds from the sale of the felled gums to finance the felling work.

    Over  50 indigenous trees were planted in the area and the project is ongoing as coppicing is a recurring problem and many IAPs have emerged in the cleared area.
