Conservation pigs can support the management of Rhododendron in two ways;
- Pre Rhododendron Clearance
Before clearance of Rhododendron commences, our service can be used to open up the ground layer, removing brambles, bracken etc. as well as some browsing of the Rhododendron occurring. This activity can be used to open up dense ground layer, enabling removal to take place more efficiently.
- Post Rhododendron Clearance
In post Rhododendron clearance landscapes, our service can be used to break up the thick leaf litter layer left after clearance, as well as suppress any new growth, reducing the need for spraying or manual removal again.
