Commentary

Hi Tamsin,

This location is the epicenter for gorse in the state. Fortunately, there is a very good group based out of Bandon that you will find tremendously helpful. Please visit the Gorse Action Group website for details on the best methods for gorse control and removal as well as the best techniques for restoration, including alternative plants for landscaping. http://gorseactiongroup.org/private-landowner-resources-2/

Also, this weekend is the annual "Gorse Blossom Festival" in downtown Bandon. Make sure to join the fun and visit the GAG table to chat with the pros who work with gorse. https://www.gorseblossomfest.com/

Thank you,
Wyatt
