Slash track in Glen Varragill forest
Slash track in Glen Varragill forest
During felling operations, branches and tops of felled trees - called slash - are laid to provide a 'floating' track for the heavy forestry vehicles to drive over.
This causes minimal damage to the ground, and prevents vehicles getting stuck in the boggy peat.
They also provide a useful path for Geograph photographers onto ground which has been in the middle of a dense forest for about 25 years.
