The end of the cycle

What was once a walk through woodland has transformed. The trees have all been felled and removed. A woodland walk is now a path across bare exposed hill. The path in question makes it way through privately owned forestry land which has recently matured. The land looks devastated. It is strewn with the debris and stumps from the recent forestry work. If you can look past the wasteland though there are now views of the river Clyde and surrounding hills that were once blocked by the monoculture of spruce trees. Otherwise look closely at the wasteland and you will be able to see the next generation of trees, the cycle begins again and eventually the woodland will return.
