Thread: Why do they leave one or two trees standing when they fell a block of forestry?

    Why do they leave one or two trees standing when they fell a block of forestry?

    Why do they leave one or two trees standing when they fell a block of forestry?

    There always seem to be a couple left standing in an otherwise completely felled block of spruce.

    They are not deciduous/dead/contain a nest so can anyone please tell me why?

    Its because under sustainable forest certification requirements, there is a need to leave a certain quantity of fallen and standing deadwood for insects, raptors, wood peckers and other cuddly things. It can look very ugly or done in the right way in the right place. So says my forester mrs who knows about these things.

    They left a small block on one piece I shoot on which looks much better than the odd bare tree
