Tree care - MetService Volunteers - 12 May 2010

Typical of the area where the MetService Volunteers were working. The bright green is tree lucerne - a nursery crop.  The yellow is gorse.  The "white" items are plastic 'hare nets' used to protect seedlings from rabbits and hares.
There have been multiple years of plantings here - reflected in the different stages of growth.

A major task of tree care work is to provide protection from
nibbling rabbits and hares, hence the 'hare net' plastic protectors.

Preparing a plastic sleeve ('hare net') to go over the wire frame for the tree seedling in front of him.  That's dead gorse in the background.
