Land Management on the Slopes of Roseberry

The self seeded rowan and silver birch are being thinned by the National Trust who own the hill. I was amazed that native British trees should be cut down but was told that management is needed to create semi open woodland which is better for such species as the Willow Warbler. The cut branches are piled up to provide cover for small mammals.
