The Countryside Council for Wales recently put out to tender a contract for ways of implementing a doubling of Snowdonia’s natural forest cover. The National Trust recently bought 3000 acres on Snowdon and is committed to re-establishing woodland up to the natural tree line. The Trust also has an active interest in applying minimal intervention practices in large areas that it owns elsewhere (for example, in Ennerdale, see Chapter 5) and of large-scale habitat restoration in the fens of Cambridgeshire.

Yet, truly modern and open science knows that it co-creates the reality it purports to study objectively. Physicists tell us quite clearly that there are no boundaries to physical reality – that underlying everything is electromagnetic waveform and a gravity field – and the occasional psychologist has even put the scientific mind under scrutiny! The scientific worlds of measurement and metaphor, with their glorious technological spin-offs, have gained not just primacy as knowledge, but primacy of culture: the objective and consensual over the personal and the rational above the intuitive.

Although we shall focus upon the Trees for Life project in the relatively untouched Glen Affric region, there is considerable progress being made within the Cairngorms by both the National Trust for Scotland (who are also active in Glen Affric) at Mar Lodge and the RSPB at Abernethy. These two organizations are fostering increased natural regeneration of the pine forests with policies of deer culling and fencing over several thousand hectares. The NTS management allows for traditional economic exploitation from grouse shooting and fishing, whilst the RSPB land represents a core of habitats subject to natural processes.
