Overpriced Poisoned Land
Today i bumped into and talked to a valuer for a private client about the land across from me today. Based on recent sales in the area he thinks its going to go for over 2 million dollars but development wone begin for a few years. The entire site and most of mangere this guy was saying is contaminated with agrichemicals (he gave the example of DDT) so the top 600mm or so of soil will be bulldozed off and put in a landfill. Which is a pity because its nice soil and via bioremediation it could well be used to grow food in future. He says is destined for mid density low quality housing so the developer can make a quick profit.
Predatory wasp (i think) and a member of the carrot family. On the vacant land
Fruit tree's which once surounded a house on the vacant lot.
