For anyone running a Shoot

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is for anyone running a Shoot.
    It's regarding what plants and trees make good cover for wildlife and game.
    The wood that I'm restoring used to have a flighting pond in it. The pond is now almost choked with crud like Willow and Birch; that's not the problem as I can sort them out with the swing shovel
    Part of the flight path, for want of a better description, has Laurel growing down it. Some of the limbs are thicker than bigbird67's thighs.
    Is Laurel of any use as game cover? I can't think that there's much by way of food on the wretched plant. The only animals I have ever seen under it were two Muntjac.
  2. Just an update: It gets worse because it turns out the muck is Cherry Laurel. You can't burn it as it gives off cyanide but there may be a Forestry Commission grant to get rid of it.
  3. You could always sell it to hippies as a drug.
  4. I was also thinking of burning it off during the Tourist Season... or during the Bumjamin Britton festival at Snape Maltings
  5. Have a look at this site :-
