Salix on BBC Countryfile

Last week saw  BBC TV’s Countryfile programme film Salix’s willow revetment techniques on the River Wye at Symonds Yat.

Presenter Ellie Harrison, Salix’s Rhodri Henry and Richard Edwards undertook the task of planting live willow to address riverbank erosion, whilst Salix Technical Director David Holland talked to camera about the techniques suitability and application on the Wye.

The programme will be aired towards the end of January, please follow this link to the BBC’s website (historic) with our own willow revetments and Salix’s range of environmentally sound technologies.
