On the left hand side of Rapaki Track in the pines there is a large patch of multiple weeds - blackberry, ivy, cotoneaster, spindletree, agapanthus, periwinkle etc. I'd love to see this cleaned up before these spread into the native plantings nearby. Also a lot of thistles and mallow spreading up Rapaki Track, seems worse in the last few years since recycled gravel was spread on the track. Many of these weeds are spread more generally in the road reserve on Rapaki Road. E.g. patch of periwinkle near turning area, agapanthus apparently dumped on the roadside etc. ref:
