Rosebay breakthrough

Our last work party managed to forge a passage through the encroaching rosebay jungle in the tree nursery field at Filnore Woods.  This is the least visited part of the site and so the paths grow over more easily.
 
 
The Rosebay Willow Herb has a beautiful magenta plume of flowers.  In America it is called Fireweed, either because of the bright flash of red made by a clump of these plants in bloom, or because they are one of the first to colonise a site where there has been a fire.
 
 
 
Please use our path and help to keep it open.  It's at the top of Vilner Lane, leading into the old Northavon tree nursery.
