With a new spring comes new growth, however not all growth is wanted!
The recent window of great sunny weather provided a burst of growth in plant life in the region, which provided the ideal time for Neil, CIRB Project Officer, to carry out an invasive plant survey on the Chlenry Burn, a tributary of the Piltanton Burn. As a result of the survey, 550m2 of Japanese knotweed was recorded growing on the banks of the burn. These areas of Japanese knotweed are being included in the 2013 control programme of the CIRB project, and treatment work will be carried out by qualified volunteers and contractors.
