Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) [4 of 4]
In Dorset we are seeing extensive work to restore our precious heathland habitat and so many areas are being cleared of the Scots Pine. Indeed, at Arne people had the opportunity to 'pull a pine' for Christmas to remove newly , self seeded plants before they got too big. Elsewhere large areas are being felled and not replanted.
We may actually be witnessing the end of the Scots Pine in the area; good or bad? What effect will this have on the Squirrel population?
