We’ve been asking the forest managers not to do the usual thinning the forest, to let it mature instead, so we can enjoy and appreciate an unspoiled old forest environment. We’ve got what we asked for: a forest full of big old trees that keep falling with every storm.
A crew of 10 managed last night to finally clear all the massive deadfall from the Glasgow (Landfill) side. Keep in mind that we are not allowed to use chainsaws, so everything was done by hand! As hard as doing so much work is, it is fun too; it makes one feel powerful and close to the forest. The best part is getting to love these magnificent trees, and having pride in allowing them natural deaths.
