Invasive Pines, watch out!
The Southern Cape Fire Protection Association (SCFPA), together with Working for Water, recently cleared large Pine trees from the Langvlei dunes area n Wilderness.
This has resulted, not only in more water being available for Langvlei and the natural vegetation, but has also decreased the fire risk for the resident of the area.
The SCFPA is a non-profit and public benefit organisation which operates in the area. Their objectives include empowering local communities in assisting them to become more aware of the risks of fire. Also to capacitate them to act proactively to reduce the hazards (including IAPs) to their assets and allow them to act as first response to fire emergencies.
