Description:

the vanguard of a severe invasion playing out on the slopes below, where they are so thick you cannot see any fynbos! major long term loss of biodiversity will be the consequence, as this area is packed with endemics. this invasion, like many, has been building up for decades and is completely unmanaged. bring on the pine bark beetles I say!
