Windthrow, Beecraigs.
Windthrow, Beecraigs.
An area of windthrow, trees felled and scattered by wind. This is a big problem in commercial forestry. Trees grown close together do not develop strong root structures. If one goes, the wind can take a lot out. Clearing up windthrow is laborious and dangerous work.
