Balsam removal continue with great success

Balsam removal continues throughout the Nore Valley basin and in particular in the Kilkenny city area with large numbers of volunteers taking part over the last number of weeks.

Extensive new areas which have not been previously cleared are now being declared balsam free for 2020. The main aim is to remove plants prior to flowering so that the seed is not available for 2021.

Riverbanks now clear of Balsam through our our city and environs

Congratulations to all the volunteers who are taking part. See also our Facebook page with details of the various events taking place.
