Argyll Small Woods Cooperative & The Croft Woodlands Project - Bracken control demonstration (Facilitated by the Farming Advisory Service)

25th July
Bracken (Pteridium aquilinum) is a vigorous and aggressive fern, spreading rapidly by means of strong underground stems or "rhizomes". Bracken is a major weed in many upland and upland margin areas, causing management problems in agriculture, forestry, conservation, game management and recreation.


Come along to this half day demonstration to learn about:
• How it grows / spreads and the value of bracken;
• Grants / funding;
• Asulox update;
• See a variety of low and high tech equipment that can be used to control bracken including a horse roller, scything, toppers and weed wipes.

The afternoon is free, supported by the Forestry Commission Scotland, Woodland Trust and the Farming Advisory Service. For more details please see the flier attached.
