We were delighted to read in this weeks POST about the “frilling” of privet in one area of Waiuku.
Congratulations and well done to Auckland Council. At least it is a start, long may it be effective, and long may it continue, which all allergy patients will be thankful for.
Hopefully the same treatment becomes routine in the Pukekohe area, where the medical fraternity will be pleased not to be treating endless allergies in patients. Grateful patient .
Editors Note: It is always pleasing to see action being taken on community concerns. Well done Auckland Council – The Post.
Facebook Comment: Good on the Council For Sorting out the Issue. Frilling the pest trees seems to work well, in 2-3 week they should have dropped all their leaves.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
