There is currently some concern about the spread of myrtle rust, a South American fungal disease that affects members of the myrtaceae family and which has recently been detected in parts of the Central Coast. We are currently seeking advice on what preventative measures might need to be taken for orienteering events, but in the meantime everyone should read this item by Matt Springall (Acting Ranger, Lane Cove National Park) in the OANSW newsletter.
You may have heard over the last few months of an outbreak of Myrtle Rust on the Central Coast. While containment in the nurseries had been largely successful, in recent weeks the situation has significantly worsened with its detection in bushland across 30 000ha of the Central Coast. Spread of this disease can be carried from one bushland reserve to another on clothing following contact with infected foliage. Myrtle Rust is a South American rust fungus which is previously unknown in this country and has the potential to devastate our over 5000 species of plants in the Myrtaceae family. This includes Eucalypts, Angophoras, Tea Trees, Bottlebrush, Paperbarks and Lilypilly amongst some of our most iconic, valuable and well loved bushland plants. The current situation for the control program for this disease is that we need all the help we can get from those who live in and around, work in or enjoy our bushland.
