NN1508 : New loading area

near to Ardno, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

New loading area
New loading area
A new area of hardstanding cut out of the sitka forest above Loch Fyne. This is probably going to be a loading site for when the trees are felled - they appear to be ready. If not cut in time, the wind gets in and large areas of windthrow occur, dangerous and expensive to clear. These trees are vulnerable, they grew up used to shelter, now exposed the wind will easily throw them - but the foresters have other plans for them.
