A trip to Erddig (near Wrexham) today to pull up Himalayan balsam.
There were eleven volunteers from MNTV, along with three from Chester/Merseyside.
We enjoyed warm, sunny weather whilst making big inroads into a swathe of balsam on the banks of the Black Brook which runs through the estate.
The ranger was busy with a chainsaw in the same area - clearing some trees and low branches. Himalayan balsam prefers shade, so the extra light should play a part as well.
