Carrifran meets Corehead

Last Tuesday our Carrifran volunteers came to help over at Corehead. The task.... have a guess.... BRACKEN!

We've written a few previous blog posts on bracken so do revisit those for more info. But we just wanted to share a few pictures from the day spent in Tweedhope which give a flavour of what we were up against. Armed with jungle knives and a few canes, we went in to find those trees....

This is what we were working in

It can be quite easy to lose a volunteer in this stuff (cue adding that to the risk assessment)

Oh.. spotted another volunteer

Anyone spot the tree?

Some of our handiwork. These trees can now enjoy the sunlight and hopefully spurt up a bit more before the bracken dominates again.
