A Day on the Heath

Tuesday, August 12th 2014

Our volunteers spent the majority of their day working on the heathland, weeding out invasive Silver Birch and willow saplings. Work concentrated on the area nearest the path; as you can see from this 'before' photo the area was densely covered with these invasive young plants.

We had decided that the best course of action would be to try and dig out as many of the stumps and roots as possible; this would minimise the regrowth and work required over the coming years - even if it meant a bit more hard work today.

After a hard days graft there was definitely a big improvement to be seen at the west end of the heathland.

A big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out today, the aching muscles will be testament to what was achieved.
