Himalayan Balsam Damage

This image shows the damage Himalayan balsam causes on the Wilden Marsh  island. Grass grows on the near mainland riverbank because cattle graze any balsam growing here. The far island riverbank soil is bare and covered with dried balsam stalks. We need a bridge to enable the cattle to graze our valuable island.
