A cost-benefit analysis of removing alien trees in the Tsitsikamma mountain catchment

A cost-benefit analysis of removing alien trees in the Tsitsikamma mountain catchment

South African Journal of Science 95(10): 442-448

The Working for Water Programme of the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry is the biggest conservation project in terms of manpower use currently being undertaken in South Africa. It involves the removal of water-consuming alien vegetation and restoration of low water-consuming indigenous vegetation (fynbos), and during 1998 about 40 000 jobs were created in the programme.
