As the coal is removed by opencast methods from a number of areas on Airds Moss, part of the land reinstatement programme is to plant several varieties of deciduous trees.
In the distance can be seen the fireclay pit which has around two years supply of clay at the present rate of extraction. The mound of overburden to the right will then be used to improve the area shown in Photo No.366318.
