Be careful when selecting which tree species to plant, and where – check with your regional council before planting any conifer species.
Remove wilding pine seedlings and saplings that have established outside planted areas, before they develop cones.
Work with neighbours to control wilding pines that have spread across property boundaries.
Pull out small wilding pine seedlings or cut small trees close to the ground. These trees can be left on site to break down naturally.
Can join (or start) a community group helping to control wilding pines (www.wildingpines.nz/get-involved/join-a-community-group), or spread the word on social media – check out the videos and images you can use.
