Friends of Emerald Lake

Last year, Friends of Emerald Lake Park received a $20,000 Communities Environment Program grant from the Federal Government.

This program will employ contractors to undertake the removal of large Sycamore Maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) within the western forest and waterway.

Sycamore Maple, grow very quickly from seed to a large tree, of 20-30 metres. The large trees shade out native plants, produce 10,000 seeds a year and drop a large amount of leaf litter in autumn that smothers

indigenous vegetation. Small seedlings soon become a forest in the moist ground.

To complement the tree removal works, FELP will hold a Sycamore Maple Blitz at Emerald Lake Park throughout March to remove small seedlings.

The community is invited to attend and help remove the seedlings.

Working Bees will be held on 7 March, 15 March and 19 March between 9-11am.

Morning tea will be provided but attendees will need to use their own gloves.
