14th July Himalayan balsam

All set for another Himalayan balsam today. Staff from the Estate will be tackling part of the Back brook, a tributary of the Otter River, and hopefully connect other areas cleared by local community groups around Stowford, Goosemoor and Hawkerland. The balsam is starting to flower now, so we need to get cracking to clear as much as we can before it seeds. This has been a good clearing year with noticeable gains against this species made on the Colaton and Back brooks.
