Storm damage to assist in river basin rehabilitation

Damage caused by hurricanes and hurricanes could accelerate efforts to restore white water in the South Esk River and the Glenn Dollar River.

About a third of this site is down.

In the next 30-40 years, these cones will be gradually removed to expand and improve the flow zone in the forest. Recent hurricanes have accelerated this process… Once we have cleared the garbage, viz.

Basin Rehabilitation is a key part of our land management plan throughout Scotland. The goal is to replace the cobblestones near the river systems with Broadford natural corridors.

These are important places for biodiversity to help reduce the temperature of the rivers that we are seeing due to climate change. The western region has planted more than 6,000 indigenous trees such as alder, birch, aspen, cherry and hazel. These cones are replaced in the same way.

New trees have been planted along the river.Example of establishing a basin zone elsewhere in the region.

Gares Venters, an environmentalist at FLS, said:

“Species such as otter, brown trout and Atlantic salmon really thrive on healthy water and watersheds. Rehabilitation of river basins is of great importance to them as well as to the overall health and vitality of rivers and streams.

“They also provide access pipelines across all landscapes. They provide a safe haven for a wide variety of habitats, from fast moving mammals and birds, but at the same time important and often rare investment, leach and mosses.

“Planting wood flooring provides shade to help maintain water chemistry and control the temperature of the water.

Ventres says the benefits will continue even after the trees die.

“Various vertebrae move to feed small mammals, birds, and fish in dead and rotten wood or to build their homes.

“In the South Esk River, we talked about connecting 15-20 windmills to their roots. These will be added to the water course in consultation with Naturescot and the River South Score Partnership partners for large pieces of wood. This wood debris creates habitats by creating a variety of depths and streams in the river.

The site has been under surveillance for more than 10 years and is not allowed to hold coniferous renovations that threaten the growth of new trees and overexposure. We will continue to intensify this project and previous basin planting work by adding more indigenous trees in the basin area as the forest is restructured and over time we will include unusual trees and shrubs such as black leaf willow and pine shrubs. As the team clears the wreckage, the Glenn Doll streets remain closed to visitors.
