Cemaes Himalayan Balsam Eradication Project 2013
St Dogmaels Community Association's project "Cemaes Himalayan Balsam Eradication Project 2013" will follow on from successful project work commenced in 2012. The overall aim is to prevent the spread & to eradicate the invasive weed, Himalayan Balsam, from a 30 acre area on Cemaes Head. Also in the longer term to return land, unmanaged for many decades, to a more productive agricultural state with a pattern of natural wildlife habitats. Work undertaken to date has proved effective, but to realise even greater potential benefits to conservation, biodiversity and longer term sustainable land management, additional follow on work is essential. Project work will include further removal of Himalayan Balsam from sites by hand pulling or mechanical means, depending upon the density of plant growth and nature of the terrain.
