I am from Mauritius, a country famous for it’s extinct species such as the dodo bird. So i’ve been working on this project of mine to reforest some mountains while using funds from bee farming even though European bees are invasive here and contribute little to pollination.
I am reusing the wood to set up the stalls for the native plant nursery. So I wanted help for killing invasive trees such as Eucalyptus, Latana, Privet, Guava, Litsea …etc
Since i want this to be a sustainable project,keep pesticide to a minimum please.
So most Eucalyptus on my property are 200-150 years old and were planted by the British after they cut all native forests for sugarcane plantation then they found out erosion was a thing !!
Eucalyptus is so bad for soil, it has made the entire mountain range dry and rivers have dissappeared,and i’ve seen drastic recovery with some places that removed eucalyptus.
