A good year coming up for Giant Hogweed on the River Nairn?

Last Wednesday night River Community Council again discussed the eradication of invasive species on the part of the River Nairn that runs through their area. 
Murd Dunbar reported that he had received an e-mail from Councillor Green stating that the Council would be spraying this week.  Giant Hogweed has been one invasive plant where the efforts of the town and the voluntary efforts of Murd and his river patrol squad have achieved some success in recent years but this year as growth finally starts on the River Bank it looks like this plant is making a serious comeback and the local authority will have to try and deploy its scarce resources to deal with it.

Aye, it's made a serious comeback from the mouth of the Auldearn burn all the way down past the railway bridge. They'd better get their fingers out or they will lose the battle. In my humble opinion they didn't do enough eradication work last year.

I think the question should be,did they do any eradication at all.?
