Cherry seedlings are mainly found in the northern areas of the project site (Figures). This is because the original source of the seedlings was Cherry trees in the woodland bordering section 9. The Cherry is gradually spreading to the southern regions of the project site and now extends into section 1 (Figure below). The Cherry trees in the bordering woodland are non-native and have since been removed to help control the spread of the seedlings.
