This week our usual volunteer group joined the group at Tices meadow to created a team 19 people strong including Andy and I. It was a beautiful day and there was even time for a spot of bird watching.
Armed with bow saws, loppers, a brushcutter and a chain saw the Willow really didn’t stand a chance and we cleared a huge area. We burnt all we cut and treated the stumps. This will enable the reeds to spread and hopefully out compete the Willow in future.
All round it was a very productive day and I know how pleased Richard was with the results. Thank you to everyone whom attended I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
