Lecture: Too much woodland? Is the push for more tree cover reducing the naturalness of the Highlands?

Location

Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh

Leaders

Dr James Fenton, NTS

Date

Thu, 21/09/2017 - 18:00

Amongst most nature conservationists in Scotland there is an implicit belief in the Clementsian concept of plant succession to a stable climax vegetation and that such a climax in Scotland is woodland. Hence the absence of woodland across most of the Highlands is ascribed to human action, and anything which prevents return to woodland such as grazing must be unnatural.
