Ten Acres Habitation
Unfortunately there are several locations in the woodland area that have Knotweed growing. The Friends of Ten Acres are working hard to try to eradicate this pest species as carefully as possible. If you see this pest species please be careful not to spread it (do not take cuttings, seeds or roots).
