The text reads as:
‘Spare vegetation on 12in of peat two years after felling at Moorburnhead.’
Forest Research staff were obviously turning their minds to the potential problems of replanting of clearfelled forest crops. There is no mention of any work on this site but the ground looks remarkably clear of brash -almost as if whole trees had been pulled out unsned and processed elsewhere.
