Restoring the Riverbank

The Tweed River in Scotland is about to become the focus of a massive giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) eradication project, according to this article from Scotland on Sunday. As part of the three-year, 375,000 BP ($612,000 USD) program, over 400 miles of the riverbank, infested with the invasive, toxic plant, will be sprayed with herbicide. To learn more about the Tweed Forum's Invasives Project, which targets Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) as well as giant hogweed, go here.
