13084: Arum lily eradication in Capel Tuart Forests at Ludlow and Mininnup (stage 2)
Arum lilies are thought to have escaped from domestic gardens before the 1920s.
They have spread rapidly in the Capel area, forming dense understory monocultures in parts of the Tuart Forest National Park.
Without control Arum lily could completely replace the native understory of the forest and destroy the habitat of local animals.
Capel LCDC has been removing the lily from the forest for 20 years and has eradicated it form several parts.
This project continues this good work, aiming to eradicate Arum lily from a further 360 hectares of forest at two sites.
- 96ha surrounding the former Bemax mine site in Ludlow Tuart forest
- 264ha of Mininnup Tuart forest
