We were devastated last summer, on visiting one of our favourite walks, Cann Woods, to discover vast tracts of felled trees - obviously something was very wrong.... It was phytophthora ramorum, a rapidly spreading fungal disease which attacks larch trees, later found to be jumping species. Throughout the South West some 600 acres of woodland has had to be destroyed to contain the spread. Visitors to the various FC sites were asked to keep to the paths and clean their shoes and bikes on leaving the woods to help further with containing this deadly disease. Thankfully it's not harmful to people or animals so the woods weren't closed to us.

Now the woods are being replanted and already thousands of saplings are in place - everywhere we looked today there was the relentless march of green-netted supports. We spoke to some of the workers there who told us a team of about 10, including 5 sub-contracted in, have so far spent 2 months solidly replanting. Good work, guys!!!

So here are some pics - taken with my new Fuji compact as I couldn't handle the dslr and my daughter's mad lab at the same time Grin. Hope they have some appeal.

Thanks for looking and for your continued support.

Hurrah for cutting and replanting! We are dealing with the emerald Ash Borer--might need to do the same!

Let's hope the same fate doesn't occur to the newly planted trees. Nice set of images to look back on after they've grown, Theresa Smile

no1 one has a very strange appeal to it, a forest of sticks ad pipes. It always makes me sad to see things like no 5, over the years only two forests on my way home have benn left untouched, one good thing about heir's disputes!

Thanks Annette - I do know what you mean about V5, but managing forests commercially means that we have some lovely carefully tended areas we can walk/cycle/ride in which would otherwise probably be developed, with the woodland lost forever Sad.
