#Words and #PictureOfTheDay: 11/Mar/22

Serried rows was how they planted us
but time and wind and mishap
interrupted their imposition
and now we grow more naturally
though it’s true our origin
can still be seen by those who see

A few of my pictures appear in the Gallery.
And you’ll find many more here for use on book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or anything else you fancy in print or online, or as art quality prints to decorate your home or office.

  1. They need to plant a mix of trees because that’s how it occurs in nature in any bare area. First to see are the conifers and only later do a variety of hardwoods take root.

    1. Here, our first populators of uncultivated land tend to be elder and silver and rough birch. They eventually die off, after they’ve filtered out the toxins, and then the ground becomes populated with, as you say, Noelle, a wide variety of plants and trees, which is how nature intends it.

    1. The owners, a state run organisation called ‘Forestry England’ are learning from past mistakes, Lynette. Their predecessors created large plantations of monoculture. Many of these are now succumbing to various diseases, and some have had to be clear-felled. But they are gradually replacing the single-species areas with multi-breed plantations, where hardwoods and pines are mixed. It makes for a better environment and better ecological systems for wildlife. Plus, they generally look more attractive, so it’s a win/win situation!
