  • Barrington River

    Willow Warriors have mapped willows along the Barrington River between Cobark River junction and Barrington township. There we very few invasive willows between Cobark and Rocky Crossing and little evidence of them spreading. Between rocky Crossing and Barrrington there is a significant number of St Johns Willows (a crack / weeping hybrid) there are very few crack willows in the region and so the risk of the hybrid producing seed is low and there was no evidence of a seeding event.

  • Capertee River

    The Capertee Valley was surveyed by motor vehicle in 2006 and no significant invasive willow populatons were noted. The only willow taxa noted in the valley was weeping willows.

  • Cattai Ck

    Along with South Creek and other creeks to the east of the Hawkesbury River, Cattai Creek has an ever increasing number of black willows. As these galleries get larger and set seed further to the east, the willows will choke the creeks of the Sydney Metropolitan Area should start flooding and causing damage to thousands of homes and businesses in the Sydney metropolitan area hopefully the voters who suffer damage from this flooding will start to bring pressure on the NSW government to start planning the management of willows in NSW.

  • Clyde River

    Willow Warriors ran a mapping activity along the Clyde River to map willows by taxa but so far no invasive willows have been found in the catchment. However the group that paddled the river between Clyde ridge road and shallow Crossing were able to provide some information to the Milton Landcare Group on the extent of a privet infestation along the river and treat one or two isolated privet plants.
