Scrub Clearing At Pepperbox Hill – 2011

Pepperbox Hill is managed by the National Trust and our first task of the season was clearing scrub around Juniper.  There was some concern at the reserve because the Juniper (an important and increasingly rare species) was being swamped by hawthorn and privet etc.  Even more worrying was the fact that there were no seedlings and small plants – almost all the plants on the reserve being in their middle age.
