In the Gazette today

Horror of horrors, George Monbiot in the Guardian,  talks of our "Sheepwrecked" Lake District.

But hasn't he a point? I do love my trees and I'll go specially to Brantwood in the spring just to enjoy a precious oak by the lakeside there while sat with an expensive coffee and cake.

Wouldn't it be great to have more deciduous trees in our countryside? Could we not fence off some areas. How about a really nutty idea and bring wolves back here in restricted ( not for long) areas- as they are talking about in remote Scotland. Now that would bring the tourists flooding in. There's been talk of Golden Eagles. Wouldn't they enjoy a tree or two?
