Skyhook helicopter land for a refill of bracken spray.
Managing bracken is an extremely important process for farmers, estate owners and public bodies. If left unchecked, bracken can become dominant and smother areas of productive land and heather moorland, this can be seen throughout many areas of the UK. For farmers this can make it extremely difficult for grazing and also gathering. In moorland areas, this can lead to sensitive habitats being invaded and within a short period of time, destroyed. Bracken provides the perfect habitat for ticks, which can affect livestock and spread diseases such as Lyme disease.
