Flood Zone in the Gully

A visit to the gully during a very wet night and day (the region has a flood alert in place) gave a good indication of the flood level on the gully floor. This has an impact on future planting plans because it would be expected that during winter this area would be a regular flood plain.

Swamp trees like Kahikatea, Pukatea and Swamp Maire along with Astelia are well suited to the conditions but will have to be a good size and well staked to survive until they are established.
