Cherry laurel is poking through the fence of Tameside Caravans on Russell Street.
Prunus laurocerasus is an evergreen shrub and an invasive plant. Its rapid growth, coupled with its evergreen habit and its tolerance of drought and shade, often allow it to out-compete and kill off native plant species. It is spread by birds, through the seeds in their droppings.
