Sharing Good Practice event
Although effective techniques for rhododendron control have been developed and a range of grants and other funding options have been available for some time, many control projects encounter a range of barriers in getting underway and in applying those techniques successfully. Challenges range from matching funding objectives and timescales with work on the ground and achieving on-going monitoring and follow-up control, to training and supporting volunteers and winning the hearts and minds of the local community. This event will focus on how to overcome barriers to achieve long-term, sustainable rhododendron control.
Who is this event for?
Those engaged or interested in rhododendron control at the landscape-scale, including community groups, landowners, land manager, agents, woodland advisers, NGOs and government agencies.
