Experience in the use of livestock to control gorse in Ashley Forest



Experience in the use of livestock to control gorse in Ashley Forest



FRI Bulletin (139): 85-94



Sheep and cattle are used to control gorse (Ulex europaeus) in this Pinus radiata forest at Canterbury, New Zealand. The practice has evolved from the use of grazing in the Okuhu block of the forest, which is the site of an integrated farming/forestry project.
