Struggling to survive
Struggling to survive
At 690m these self seeded Scots pines have a tough struggle ahead of them. They can cope with the nutrient poor granite based soils, but the short growing season at this altitude will tell against them. Self seeded trees can be found in high places. 800m Sitka saplings are not a rare sight (that is altitude, not half mile high trees).
