NG4736 : Slash track

taken 8 years ago, 3 km from Conordan, Highland, Great Britain

Slash track
Slash track
'Slash' is branches and tops of felled trees. It is used to provide a 'floating' track for the heavy forestry vehicles to drive over during felling operations.
This causes minimal damage to the ground, and prevents vehicles getting stuck in the boggy peat.
This part of Glen Varragill forest was cleared in summer 2008.
The central peak in the background is Ben Tianavaig.
