Were all plants aliens?
“Disaster waiting to happen” (January 8): I agree that the piles of dead bush are a huge fire hazard, but let’s go back to the beginning.
Is it really possible that not a single item of flora removed was indigenous, and that every single plant or bush or tree was “alien” and had to be removed and destroyed – even to the extent of using a front end loader! Was there any form of supervision by a knowledgeable individual?
And so now we have a barren piece of ground and there seems little chance of rain to dampen down the soil blowing away. JS Port Elizabeth
