User's notes

Approximately 4-year-old firethorn in grassy woodland close to the lower Hackett water tank at an approximately 100 square meters site that was somehow scrapped out for water overflow. The site is now covered with English Ivy and other berry-bearing woody weeds such as Ivy, Privet, African Olive, and Firethorn, and that are spread by birds. I removed woody weeds from this site every 2nd year in the past 20 years but not in the last 4 years. Mapped with Field Maps / Untreated weeds.
