Arbory Parish Commissioners started a 5 year campaign to control Japanese Knotweed in the Colby River in 2018. Below is the latest report from the contractor undertaking the works
 
“In summary, control thus far has been very good, with a higher rate of control than initially anticipated. The weather has also stayed warmer, for longer this year, allowing us to continue for longer, until any treatment would have been rendered ineffective.
 
In addition to the area originally agreed, we continued control to 2 fields beyond the Railway line.
As per usual, we will be making regular checks through next Spring and Summer to monitor progress, but all is certainly looking good so far.”
