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.

Cattai Creek

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.
