Description: After being under pines for over 40 years the pines were removed but this veld has never been burned. Desperately needs a fire but SANParks too $&$% scared to burn, despite it having been flagged as a "Threshold of Potential Concern" for over 5 years! (veld older than 25 years is a serious fire hazard for uncontrolled runaway fires, and a risk to biodiversity loss).

Description: Emergent invasion of Stone pines creeping from a farm boundary up the mountain. Mainly large adult trees, but juveniles also present. Boland Granite Fynbos - old veld - probably over 10 years. Lots of cones lying on the ground around the trees (see last pic). There are lots more of these pines (among other invasive pine and Eucalyptus spp.) on the koppies to the east of this locality.

Description: A hard resin type bubbling up out of the old cut pines..not like a fungi..more like resin. It has a hollow light high soft sound when broken, as I did for this pic. This bit was picked between the bark and the old stump (vertically) which had separated with age. It isn't a plant, but derives from a plant. Is there a category for this ?

Description: This slope was obviously well covered in pines, but were cut down. Only a few traces, other than basal stumps - and the very occasional trunk like this and the rare seedling, remain and it is hard to believe that dense stands were present a few decades ago. The alien control on this property is exemplary! Wish the same could be said for the neighbours.

Description: If clearing pines makes a mess, it is nothing compared to what the machinery used does. Here gravel - from an unknown, and possibly alien-invasive contaminated quarry- was brought in and dumped to prevent the large logging trucks from bogging down. Despite promises that all gravel brought it would be removed after the harvesting, this never happened. Fortunately alien seeds in the gravel were low.

Description: Too steep to harvest (planted under the philosophy that when it would come to harvest, technology will solve the problems: we now have the technology, but it is not affordable - a slight little oversight). Was frilled by a contractor, but none of the plants died. Shortly after this was frilled again, more successful.

Description: Harvesting day: Plantation > Fynbos Unfortunately SANParks could not get their act together to burn this block and it is slowly recovering with lots of aliens. The seedbank was thus not stimulated to germinate: let us hope it lasts until until SANParks eventually carries out its mandate to restore the area properly.
