Rock Ripped at Betws y Coed
Rock Ripped at Betws y Coed
Near to the Monument by the lake south of Betws many trees had been wind blown and marked for cutting, this one was an excellent example of tree root as the rock slab in shallow effective depth soils with high waterlogged state had been dragged up. Many rock slips, a precarious direct ascent, never follow your wife up a cliff ! through forest, the zig zag path; the cutting out will be hard and some have wind shear and are fractured as well as myself. Back down for fish and chips in the evening light, this is some forest walk. Hafren by OLU is another photograph worth visiting for tree fall in high conifer stand. There is always much in the way of timber waste from cut of felled trees so insects, squirrels and other rodents thrive in the brush and remaining trees, leaving opportunity for hunting birds which also use the domesticated wildlife in the valley, thus does conservation ecology work automatically with forestry. Not good for chicken farmers maybe, nor lambing, but as birds scavenge, even on fish and chips, the waste that is high with intense agricultural profit systems is cleared naturally. Cut of course improves track and clearance so deer and people can access sites as well as timber and local amenity structures, it may not suit construction legal materials but it has adequate structural property for fence and small units. Forest was never a jungle of re-grown, tangled scrub, that is a consequence of land not cleared that has been made derelict from preceding use and has always been accessible to forest species which keep it and therefore the water supply clean. Concentrated wastes on the other hand offend this in parks and forest and offend people so specialists in waste operation unfortunately have to deal with the improper use of land by others. Commission always manages its stock zones well, it has to. It is a waste of resource to foul the countryside as anybody using the countryside having been confined to a city would agree. There is plenty of scrap on old farms that needs recycling for merchants to make a decent living out of steel and other items.
