Managing land for conservation is a National Trust rangers bread and butter.  The general aim is to increase habitat diversity which then leads to wildlife diversity. The photos show a disused quarry which had become over grown.  Last week the team sensitively allowed more light in by selectively felling a number of trees and removing excessive debris from the water. The result is a mixture of habitats that caters for a range of species instead of less diversity and less wildlife. SIMPLES!
