No I didn't know that Rupert, and thanks for diverting me to Wikipedia to
discover the song is based on a poem by a Scot who moved to the Yukon.
Back to work.

Hi Bill,
On the subject of Cragside, did you know that Armstrong was the subject of
a folk song - 'the munition maker' about armstrongs part in arming anyone
with money; it was covered by Country Joe Macdonald on an old Album called
War War War, from the early 70's; it has a great put down line about The
Cannon King - there are no pockets in a shroud....

And when you see how busy our armaments industry still is, it seems like
little has changed

I second Rupert's moan, and if anybody's up that way, I recommend a visit
to "Cragside." Formerly the home of that Armstrong bloke who used to make
armaments. The woodlands on the hillside behind the house are covered in
Cherry effing Laurel and also Western Hemlock. Ground florae? Mainly
Shallon (Gaultheria). Although there are some pretty big trees there, my
over-riding memory of my last visit (3 or 4 years ago) was the quantity of
invasive species. If you don't fancy a trip just to see invasives in
action, the house is pretty interesting.

Oh no it isn’t, Ron;
It’s a native of SE Europe across to the black sea;  introduction date
unknown; but spread by those lovely Georgians and  Victorians along
with Rhodo ponticum.  There was a fashion for what were called 'Laurel
lawns' - where it was grown in woodland , and kept cut to about 400mm
high - back in the days when labour was cheap and landowners and
soi-disant 'Country Gentlemen' were raping the empire for profit.  I
now have to climb through matted stands of the rubbish on many of the
estates where I do tree surveys, using limbo-dancing techniques, to
get to trees isolated in a sea of the stuff, usually up about 8-10m,
and intricately woven together; with no remaining ground-flora as a
result.
Ok - Moan over - Atb

Trouble is, Cherry Laurel is native. At least Rhododendron Ponticum,
went on the list ...

As you've mentioned Schedule 9 Ron, anybody know if it's in the
process of being reviewed? The current version doesn't seem to have
been updated in a while and I think it's high time Cherry Laurel and
Portuguese Laurel were acknowledged as the bl++din+ nuisance they
undoubtedly are.

S.215 relates to the hoarding of materials brought onto a site ...
rubbish, cars, building materials and rat infestations. It is not
intended to force people to manage their vegetation. Overgrown trees
are not seen to be an adverse effect on amenity. There are other
powers to deal with nuisance trees and threats to the wider public
at large and, for neighbours to deal with overhanging plants, as
well as the control of escaped invasive prohibited plants under
schedule 9 (W&C Act 1981). Although, in dealing with hoarders,
overgrown vegetation sometimes has to be cut back when local
authorities take
direct action.
