Wind Damage
The Forestry Commission planted a large area of upland in this area with Norway Spruce in the 1950s. Much of it is now ready for harvesting. In this photograph, timber has been felled to the right of the picture leaving remaining trees exposed to winds from the West. Their shallow rooting systems are unable to cope and some are uprooted.
