Overcoming the barriers to effective rhododendron control - 27 March 2019

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.

When and where

The event will be held in Appin Village Hall, with afternoon workshops taking place at various outdoor locations along Glen Creran.

We'll be open for registration from 9:30 with tea and coffee available.  We'll finish at the village hall at 16:00.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided through the day.
