How does one farming couple repair 370 ha of native forest severely infested with Lantana and affected by Bell Miner–Associated Dieback (BMAD)? After their use and improvement of ‘splatter gun’ technology to control Lantana, the once declining forests, with ailing trees, are now vigorously regenerating and most trees are recovering. This raises the question of whether Lantana presence may be a critical element in a complex process of ecosystem breakdown.
