Water Project

Himalayan Balsam removal

 

We were along Cinderford Brook at Linear Park where we were removing any Himalayan Balsam we could find and doing a general litter pick. Himalayan Balsam needs to be pulled before it starts to seed

We were joined by representatives of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, Friends of Forest Waterways and Severn Rivers Trust.

 

 

Plenty of the plant was found here.

 

 

This shows masses of the plant pulled from the banks of the brook.

 

 

Further up the brook showing where we needed to pull the Himalayan Balsam out.
