Update 27th Oct – Japanese Knotweed Treatment in Parkmill/Ilston

Ursula Jones, Communities and Nature Project Officer for Gower AONB has let us know that the current round of treatment of the Japanese knotweed in Parkmill / Ilston Valley is complete.

This should result in reduced regrowth next spring.  The contractors expect to be back in winter to cut the dead canes down in one of the large stands in Ilston Woods.  We will be contacted when this is likely to happen.

Another survey of the regrowth will be conducted between May and July next year and a third round of herbicide treatment is planned for autumn 2023.
