NT2706 : Amenity strip

taken 12 years ago, 3 km from Gair, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Amenity strip.
Amenity strip.
A token effort to beautify the place. This is a privately maintained forest, and the managers lag a long way behind the Forestry Commission. A few small areas were noted without sitka spruce.
Having said this, the forest has matured into a mosaic of different ages with habitat boundaries everywhere. These big forests are no longer the sterile places from the days when the canopy closed over many square miles of the same aged trees. On my visit, there were some ornithological surprises.
Note. Darkness of the picture is deliberate, it conveys the atmosphere of the forest on a stormy day at the onset of Winter.
