NX5262 : Vegetation Boundary

taken 12 years ago, near to Culcronchie, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Vegetation Boundary
Vegetation Boundary
Forested land between the "Paddy" trackbed and the Creetown road. A small area has been planted with broadleaf trees, a small gesture against an ocean of sitka. Crag Hill beyond.

Vegetation boundary is the term given in orienteering for a distinct change in tree type. A useful navigational feature, and one used by mappers, as they show up well in aerial photographs.
