The Group has acquired two Treepoppers. These are simple bits of kit to lift troublesome saplings and small trees, such as Ash and Cherry. These seed or sucker freely and if not kept under control can quickly spread. In the past we have tried taking these saplings out but hand using Azardas, but this has proved ineffective as it is difficult to remove all the roots.
The Treepopper is a simple device from South Africa that was developed to remove Australian Acacia which is an invasive species there.
