The task Pruning back the scrub.

Tools needed Tools will be provided but if you have a pair of gardening gloves and cutting tools (e.g. a pruning saw and/or a pair of loppers) it would be helpful if you could bring them along with you.

Clothing needed Appropriate clothing including sturdy footwear and long trousers is recommended due to the terrain and vegetation in some areas. Be prepared for any weather conditions as we will go ahead regardless! Waterproofs, thermals or sun screen (fingers crossed) may all be useful.
