Discovery Park - Spruce Island blackberry clearing01/28/2023


We'll be attacking a hibernating patch of blackberry, sneaking up on them while they sleep. It's amazing how much easier it is to clear blackberries this time of year. Our task will be a combination of cutting back the canes with loppers and digging up the roots to completely wallop them. They won't know what hit 'em!
