When woodlands are similar to the fishing industry

Recommended Posts

Woodland caretakers tidy up after littering, poaching, log goblins, squidgers and storm damage. What's that like?

Say there's 100 acre wood on your doorstep but you only had a quota to work a tiny area of it by law. The Commission told you so. Then you hear that there's a free-for-all. Others can trawl through the rest but you can't do a thing about it. And if you or they mistakenly harvest too much or the wrong type, it has to be thrown back. You have to accept that too. Then you hear there is a chance you could work the whole lot. What would you say?

The difference is that some of the UK fishing quota was sold by brokers on the open market. I think the UK is the only EU country to offer their quota for sale. You can’t complain about Dutch, French and Spanish trawlers working our waters when they have paid for the right to do so surely?

I would like to think that the UK leaving the EU should call a halt to discard from British boats at least.

Wasn't after info on how few ships we have to defend our waters. But was really thinking how analogies can be instructive, is all. i.e. getting youngsters into fishing or woodland management

Can't make head nor tail of it you being on the cider?

Landbanking by venture capital investors make UK woods being worked less likely. Some Arbtalkers demo great proof what it is to work the woods. Perhaps more can be inspired to use these untapped potentials?
