Airstrike ordered on Burtness.

IMG_2721
Whilst the forestry team clear the Burtness site of brash to finish phase one of the Spruce Clearfell, it looks as though the forest ranger has ordered an airstrike to try and speed up the process.
The site does look like a battle field now but before long it will be fenced and replanted with some native broadleaves (no doomed Ash though) and will be restored to a diverse, natural woodland. However we will be starting phase 2 further up the hill before spring, so battle will recommence. A merry christmas and a happy new year to all our visitors from the north lakes forestry team, and thanks for your support.

It's not all about axes. There are three foresters plus one apprentice in the North Lakes. Our names are Thomas, Bob, Anthony and Steven. We cover Ullswater, Borrowdale and Buttermere. We're the ones who go out into 1000 hectares of National Trust woodlands in these valleys and make sure they're healthy and safe.
