Landcare volunteers removed Boxing Glove cactus from Spencer Valley. A garden escapee, the best method to remove the plant effectively from the roots, required the use of tongs and sturdy gloves.

In Spencer Valley large areas of buffel are being removed to protect native species from wild fires and in doing so gives them a chance to grow without being choked out by the buffel.
