Sitka Spruce

Sitka Spruce

Had some time to work on personal projects this past week.  Where I live the agricultural land is marginal to poor.  Forest coverage in Ireland is one of the lowest in Europe.  There are historical reasons for this.  The government has been encouraging more forest to planted initially to redress this and now as a carbon offset mechanisim.  Sitka Spruce - not indigenous - was identified in the 60' and 70's as a fast growing conifer.  It has become the go to species for planting new 'forests'.  So much so that it now dominates the landscape - planted at densities that the land does not support anything else.
