Forestry in Action

Forestry in Action
Sometimes one has to take a longer perspective.
First, in naivete, I used to think large areas of forestry covering the landscape were beautiful, like a fir coat draped over the hills.
Accordingly, nobody likes to see hillsides denuded of their cover.
Now I know much better: monoculture is the enemy of biodiversity.
Those thoughts stuck in the brain for a few years until I discovered this area, the first place where I saw a noticeboard explaining that the hillside was going to be left for natural regeneration of native species instead of sitka spruce.
So this waste landscape is just the start of hopefully good things.
