NT2045 : Windthrow, Harehope Forest

taken 12 years ago, 4 km from Eddleston, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Windthrow, Harehope Forest
Windthrow, Harehope Forest
An expensive problem in a commercial plantation, once the wind gets in, the shallow rooted trees that have grown up in each other's shelter soon fall over. A dangerous job clearing a mess like this, as the fallen trees are often in tension, explosively released when a tree is cut. The root plates are also a hazard.
