SO2717 : Old trees, new trees

taken 9 years ago, 3 km from Bettws, Monmouthshire/Sir Fynwy, Great Britain

Old trees, new trees
Old trees, new trees
The National Trust has done good work to restore tree cover here. Old trees were not regenerating because of animals eating young seedlings. An area beyond the mature trees was fenced off and many young trees have grown inside the safe area. In recent years the number of grazing sheep has been cut (to zero?) and now seedlings are surviving outside the fenced area.
This is going to extend the wonderful semi-natural ancient woodland which has beech trees among a majority of oaks.
