Airstrike ordered on Burtness.
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.
