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.|
