Many thanks to the Wildlife trust who have helped take care of the Dogwood growth in the Rivacre Valley recently.
Dogwood can be a valued shrub and can be used to quite good effect as a landscaping tree. You will most likely have seen it regularly as you walk around – it has red twigs and produces clusters of black berries, which are a hit with the birds.
Unfortunately Dogwood can also spread quite quickly and dominates an area, inhibiting ground flora from growing. The wildlife Trust targeted the area near a pine tree not far from the Rangers Hut last Wednesday (Sept 14th 2016) during one of the regular events held with the Ranger.
How can I help?
