Forest Management: Rhododendron and Invasive Species Control
Control of invasive non-native plants such as Rhododendron, Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam can be an expensive and difficult prospect. The presence of these species is generally bad for biodiversity and the conservation of native species; hence these four species are listed in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan for control. Scottish Woodlands have a long and successful record of controlling these species to promote regeneration of native trees and a return of wildflowers and ground flora.
The control of these species can truly revitalise an area bringing in new wildlife and enabling access to formerly impenetrable areas.
