Upper Hutt Busters of Old Man’s Beard (UH BOMB) is a group of volunteers led by Upper Hutt Forest & Bird. They meet occasionally throughout the year to control old man’s beard (OMB) on public and private land around Upper Hutt. They provide everything, including morning tea!
OMB is an invasive introduced vine that climbs up and over everything in its path - large trees and mature native forest, even - and smothers it. UH BOMB aims to stop this and keep our local forests safe so they can continue to grow and provide habitat for native wildlife.
