More logging on Uvberget

This weekend I went for a walk in the woods below Uvberget here at home. In the northeast is a steep hillside where the forest is fantastic beautiful. Mosses and lichens, mixed leaf trees and spruce and many trees in various stages of decay. The area is not large, perhaps 300×70 meters but the feeling is great.

Up on the mountain Karl Hedin has already clearcut the woods, some trees up to 150-200 years old. Now I discovered that Mellanskog have marked the edge below as far up you can reach with a harvester towards the precipice. I can’t say much about the forest below. There is a planted spruce forest in their 60’s admittedly with some leaf trees. What I react on is that they can’t afford to leave 10-20 meters of spruce forest along the edge. Now the risk is that even the species-rich slope dries out and will be destroyed.
