Once again the Epping Forest authorities do their best to piss me off by pointlessly and needlessly cutting down these Birch trees quite deep within the forest, piling them up and leaving them to rot.
I know about biomass, habitat piles, stag beetle larvae, homes for adders etc, etc but those things occur naturally in the forest. What about me having some to make treen from? I'm an endangered species! but I will be fined quite heavily if I take some and get caught.
The forest gangs will do a reduction on the crown of a huge Beech pollard for no apparent reason other than to give the tree gang some work and a chance to play with the new cherry-picker. They don't touch the dangerous and dying trees which could do with some attention.
What a ridiculous situation... upsetting and frustrating.
