Giant Hogweed Control by the Conservation Group includes surveying, monitoring and the safe removal of this invasive non-native species along the Dighty Burn.  It is an invasive species that causes serious burns when touched.


We have collaborated with Dundee City Council and also with the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) to tackle the issue of Giant Hogweed.  SWT ran a training event for volunteers, local residents and businesses to learn more about how to deal with it.  Last spring two of our volunteers undertook the task of giant hogweed removal from the path between Douglas and Whitfield to prevent it being of danger to anyone passing by.
