Abel Tasman National Park News – December 2011

posted Dec 13, 2011, 9:45 PM by Robert Wopereis
The annual winter upgrade of the Abel Tasman Coast Track has been completed along to Tonga Quarry.
Next winter the plan is to upgrade the Cleopatra's Pool Track and Pitt Head Track. The winter upgrade has been carried out for three months during the winter over the last six years.
Anchorage Hut was full for 141 nights over the last year or nearly 40% of the time. The proposed rebuilding of Anchorage has not yet been approved.
The first stage of wilding pine control project in Abel Tasman is underway. Over the next few months pine trees will gradually die as a result of Round-Up injection. Native regrowth will occur beneath the pines, slowly restoring the park to what it should be. Pine trees adjoining tracks and facilities will be cut down to avoid the risk of injury from falling branches.
