5. What a cluster . . .

This is almost certainly going to be the easiest and least hazardous work we plan carrying out. Alongside activity 4, in the middle of the flooded woods, there is a cluster of self-seeded . . . yes, you guessed it . . . goat willows.

BBC again agreed that in due course these trees would develop the same growth issues as exhibited by almost every other willow at Stackmoor, and in and of themselves added no real value to the woodland ecology. So by removing them we would simply be opening up the land in that area to more pleasing or appropriate ecological redevelopment…
