Arrowtown Choppers is a group of volunteers who meet every Thursday night to chop wilding conifers. The programme has received adequate funding to deliver Phase 1 of the Arrowtown Wilding Strategy, with Phase 1 due to be completed by the end of 2020. With the spread of wildings coming under control, Phase 2 of this program is to implement a revegetation program in these cleared areas and return native biodiversity to Arrowtown. As part of Phase 2 of the Arrowtown Wilding Strategy approximately 100,000 natives need to be replanted. This revegetation phase will take several years, with the Tobins Face Trial Planting site (planted in April 2019) showing positive results. Part of the group’s responsibility is to maintain the Tobins Face Trial Planting site, which includes weeding annuals, removing broom and wilding seedlings.
