I read with interest your article on the pest plant species privet and note that a lot of tree privet can be seen growing abundantly enmass on either side of the railway embankment as it approaches through the northern end of Pukekohe in the vicinity of Cape Hill Road.
Perhaps KiwiRail should be made aware of this plant being an environmental nuisance as well as adversely affecting people’s health, and be requested to remove it?
