Chase facing recovery woe

Breaking BioScience News: United Kingdom

Feb 15, 2007
Experts from the Forestry Commission have said it could take decades for areas of Cannock Chase to recover after severe gales brought down thousands of trees. Initially the number of trees felled by the freak weather in January was thought to be in the region of 1,000 but the Forestry Commission have now said the real toll could be much higher with as many as 4,000 trees destroyed. Although roads and facilities are clear of debris there are still numerous tracks and paths which are blocked by trees which will be cleared over coming weeks. Last month’s storms were said to be the worst since 1987 and in certain places it could take as long as 50 to 100 years to recover.
