Beware! Forest Operation ...

By Humblebee
I thought this might be acceptable for Shadow Saturday. It was taken on a walk through Kings Wood, Challock. This is the track along which the loggers remove the felled trees.

V2 and v3 show a scene of devastation where swathes of trees had been cut down to just above ground.

I was so please you liked Sunshine in the Garden, and many thanks to you all for your lovely comments and votes, and an especial Thank You to Don (Frase) for his coveted UA ...GrinGrinGrin

Seems we are being promised a return to winter weather, so do keep well and keep warm ... Carol Grin

Great set of images Carol,SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile V1 for me. The images show an old country way of coppicing, the trees are cut every so many years and regrow, this is a way of manageing woodland. Some coppies are very old.

Use of the cut trees are, charcoal makeing, brooms, fenceing, rustic furniture etc

Interesting as well as super shadows.
V1 is a lovely woodland scene and V3 makes a great image too.
After the storms a few years ago, it was sad to see so many trees down,
but Nikonuser1 explanation of coppicing is interesting too.

The horizontal shadows provide an excellent counter to the vertical trees, Carol. It looks destructive but it is sustainable and controlled.

Thanks Cliff and Dave, that is great news. I did wonder if it was coppicing, so am very pleased to learn that is what it is - so many trees are destroyed and never replanted, making this planet of ours a poorer place ... Carol GrinGrinGrin
