Jill and Ted in a remarkable fruit-wood pasture in Cumbria

A very unusual wood pasture – a grazed area with trees but on this occasion all are fruit or berry bearing trees – rowan and crab apple primarily. Ian Jack, the forester, has been haloing around the old fruit trees so they will now start to flower again. It is easy to see how areas like this were thought prime sites for planting with non native conifers. Hopefully we can start to restore more of them like Ian has here.
