NT6005 : Unplanted watercourse

taken 8 years ago, near to Hyndlee, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Unplanted watercourse
Unplanted watercourse
Modern forestry practice is not to plant conifers right up to a waterway. This reduces acidification and silt run off. It also allows light in and provides a corridor for native scrub woodland improving invertebrate populations. The burns here feed the Tweed, which is still a very productive salmon river and a lot of work has been done on the headwater burns to maintain and improve fish stocks. Black Hill in the background has recently been clear felled.
