Diary Blog, 28 February 2021, including a few thoughts about trees and forests

I happened to see a report in the Independent about trees: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/prison-green-space-trees-mental-health-b1808251.html.

As Chekhov said, either (I forget) in one of his famous works, or perhaps to Gorky, and later recounted in Gorky’s memoirs called Literary Portraits, that “there are men to whom a tree is sacred“.

It is hard to imagine anywhere, or any architecture, that cannot be improved by the proximity of a few trees, or which will not be impoverished if existing trees are cut down.

Trees have several enemies in modern Britain, not least local councils who often resent the cost of sweeping leaves etc. The “health and safety” aspect is sometimes brought into play, often unecessarily. Yes, occasionally, tree branches do fall on people or, more usually, parked cars, during storms or other periods of high wind. That is not a good reason to cut down trees wholesale.

Britain has relatively low tree cover, comparing the UK to other European countries by proportion. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_countries_by_forest_area. Britain’s tree cover, though greater than it was in the recent past, is still only 13%. Germany has 33%, France 36%, and Finland 73%.

There have been attempts, still continuing, to create new forests in the UK: the Heart of England Forest is one, created by the one-time Oz magazine defendant, Felix Dennis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Dennis; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_England_Forest; https://www.heartofenglandforest.com/].

Another is the National Forest: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_National_Forest_(England); https://www.nationalforest.org/

[the National Forest, northeast of Birmingham]

Britain needs more forests, more woods, more tree cover generally, eg in urban and suburban areas. The Woodland Trust, which has planted over 43 million trees over the past four or five decades, can help and even gives away saplings in some cases: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodland_Trust.

Watched an old (1949) British film, The Golden Madonna [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Madonna]. A few silly bits, but overall quite good and rather entertaining.

I can understand why Hitchens has acceded to the softly-spoken insistence that he have the Covid-19 vaccine injection. He wants to travel, and that is being made all but impossible without vaccination. Many in the old Soviet Union, the vast majority in fact, made the same sort of compromise: unenthusiastic compliance with the regime, in order to live a quiet life, avoid penalties, and receive modest benefits such as good jobs, flats, or (for the few) travel outside Soviet borders.

This is her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Khan_(activist) (“activist” and careerist, who was a hospital pharmacist before getting into her well-paid anti-free-speech government sinecure).

If even part of her “report” were to become law and actually implemented, that is the end of even the limited free speech that now exists in the UK.

An idealized view, to be sure, but essentially accurate. Britain was a better place before migration invasion, before Zionist control of the mass media (and now even online space), before multikulti and other nonsense.

“European Housewife” was one of the most charming and unusual Twitter accounts. Historical and environmental as well as political and social. Now “suspended”. The latest victim of the war on free speech.

An old German lady told me, long ago, that “it will take a long time, but people will eventually have to face the fact that the only answer is National Socialism.

Hitler, in his Table Talk [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler%27s_Table_Talk] remarks, not far from the disastrous end of the Second World War, that National Socialism (as known) was finished, but that in maybe a century’s time, the essence of National Socialism would be reborn in another form and then would seize the world with the force of a religion. God mote it be!

Interesting. The never-ending movement of history.

Final word for tonight

Some readers of my blog may have noticed that a small group of (((trolls))) and nuisances on Twitter have recently been making untrue allegations of criminal or near-criminal behaviour by me and two other named persons.

In relation to the allegations against me specifically, I have already been forced to complain to the employer of one of the said nuisances, an NHS consultant. I may be making further complaint (regulatory and/or official) in relation to that person and others.

I am not a natural complainer (and usually ignore trolls and nuisances because of my belief in free speech), but was forced, by the harassing tweets of these individuals, to take action.

Asset-stripping parasites

Grotesque greed“…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-9186615/RUTH-SUNDERLAND-Covid-19-didnt-kill-High-Street-giants-grotesque-greed.html

Sir Philip Green and wife Tina (pictured with their daughter Chloe) bought Arcadia for £850 million in 2002 — she is the official owner
[Philip Green, wife, daughter; examples of “the simulacrum of the human”…]

As the Daily Mail article says, while such parasites stole hundreds of millions of pounds, thousands of British employees lost out and now have lost their jobs.

It has happened before, most obviously in Germany during the time of the Weimar Republic [1918-1933].

See the resemblance?

Lenient sentence

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/bully-who-stubbed-cigarettes-out-23384137

Alison Chabloz was treated more harshly for having sung supposedly “grossly offensive” songs about Jews and “holocaust” hoaxes and frauds. Jez Turner of the London Forum was even imprisoned simply for having made a speech saying that Jews should be chucked out of the UK! Real justice is failing in England.

Every. Single. Time.

After university, Green began a career at Barclays Bank, working for the organisation from 1982 to 1997.

“Wera Hobhouse is a Christian.[22] Although her mother and grandmother identified as Christians, her great-grandfather was Jewish.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wera_Hobhouse.

The Jewish/Israeli takeover of the USA really took place after the Second World War. At the time of the Suez affair (1956), the USA (as a state) was keeping Israel (as a state) at arm’s length [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Crisis].

Even in the 1960s, the USA was still not entirely under the sway of its domestic Jew (and pro-Israel) lobby. However, the American film industry had been under Jewish control since the 1920s, and the American television industry was under Jewish control from inception: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Paley [CBS]; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_J._Roberts [NBC].

Thus the American public was brainwashed by Jewish and Israeli propaganda from, at latest, the 1950s onward. That brainwashing encompassed everything from academic works through to the “nightly news” on TV, as well as works of fiction and “faction” (examples? Exodus and Schindler’s List, to name but two of the more influential).

When Israeli forces attacked a U.S. ship, it was discounted as a “mistake”…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Liberty_incident.

We have recently seen that even a “outsider” like Trump was really just a squawking parrot in a gilded cage, completely under Jewish control. The new President, Biden, is under even greater control. All of his top team and Cabinet are Jewish; even his children are all married to Jews. The penetration is so great that even Israeli (and other) newspapers have commented on it.

“Liberal”, supposedly “caring sharing”, Holland/Netherlands. I and my family had friends in Amsterdam, and for many years I had an almost rose-tinted view of life there (and I visited on a number of occasions in the 1970s and 1980s), but since then, in the past 30 years, I have encountered a number of far less congenial Dutch people, very superficial and moneygrubbing; I have realized that much of the famed Dutch “liberalism” is just a lack of real concern, and a superfluity of moral cowardice.

Waitrose foray

I went to the local supermarket yesterday, in the mid-evening. Very few customers shopping. Waitrose “Handmaid’s Tale” militiamen on duty, clothed in black, as always, faces covered with black scarves and masks like the ISIS barbarians.

The funny thing was that there was a shopper there, a grey-haired woman probably in her sixties if not seventies, wearing a cloth (i.e. useless) facemask and who insisted on giving me a wide berth of at least 10 feet! I saw her shaking her head, probably because she divined that I was not at all interested in pretending that the population has Ebola, or maybe she thought that I should be more fully masked than I was. I was the only other shopper around.

At any rate, I would have loved to have just said “wake up! It is not the Plague, and hardly anyone in this whole district has even had it!”, but (typically English?) I just ignored her scarcely-hidden rudeness and carried on.

The mad thing is that you see scared rabbits or extreme social-compliers like that woman everywhere now, masked even when alone on wet windy footpaths or in supermarket car parks. The social pathology is disturbing; I am sure that that is why “a majority of the population want more severe lockdown” (opinion polling) despite the country obviously showing signs of falling to pieces. A kind of mass agoraphobia and fear, and “Soviet” levels of —superficial— compliance; the fear has been whipped up by this government of clowns and their absurd “expert advisers”. That fear has taken on a life of its own now…

Still, I am not afraid, and after dark shop peacefully…

What is the phrase? Something like “a waste of oxygen“… We Europeans, especially perhaps we British, are in general and by nature more compassionate than Africans, North Africans, Orientals, Muslims generally, but that does mean that, sometimes, the unworthy benefit.

The truth of that was made manifest in the survival of decency and culture within families even in the terrible milieu of Jewish Bolshevism, and later Stalinism, in the Soviet Union of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s,1950s, and on to the collapse of socialism around 1989. I suppose that the worst time for secrecy plus denunciation was the 1930s, especially the Yezhovshchina of 1937-1939, and then the late 1940s.

In fact, the “Conservative” government “child spies” campaign or proposal is merely the logical consequence of what has gone before (in recent years); it is a continuation of what already exists.

In and after 2010, we saw part-Jew Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, call upon curtain-twitching pleb-Cons to “report” their neighbours who were unemployed and/or disabled, and who might be sleeping late rather than hurrying and scurrying to “seek work” (often unobtainable anyway) in the (((finance-capitalist))) economy.

For years we have seen the authorities demand that neighbours, families, churches, mosques, schoolteachers, even Church of England priests (if there are any left who are not arse-faced lesbians), report or denounce their own families, and friends, acquaintainces, pupils, parishioners etc; not only for “terrorism”, by the way, but also for supporting animal welfare, for opposing mass immigration (migration-invasion) etc. The government even established “Morozovist” organizations, such as “Prevent” and “Channel”, in order to facilitate it all.

I blogged about it years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/.

More recently, we have see government attempts to get people to denounce neighbours, friends, family who might have exceeded the arbitrary “Rule of Six” invented by Boris-idiot, or who might actually have invited family members to visit at Christmas.

Over the years, we have seen the users of Twitter etc delight in “reporting” “wrong thinking” and “wrong speaking” people to Twitter, or to police, or to others who might punish the dissident. Employers, academic institutions etc. As always, the Jewish element was in the forefront in “reporting” people, though others joined in, particularly the “antifa” idiot-crowd, and the allied self-describing “Left”.

Now this.

I wonder whether Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer will go along (yet again) with what this government is going and proposing?

The real agenda lies behind the supposed reasons for the “reporting” campaigns; to create a serf or slave society somewhere down the line.

Final thought (for today) on all that: remember what happened to Pavel Morozov. After all, if you play by Moscow Rules…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavlik_Morozov

[Pavel Morozov, second row, at middle]

I wonder where the blacks, browns, even Orientals would be, had our white European civilization, especially that developed since about 1400 AD, never existed? Oh, no, wait…

What we are seeing is not exactly “authoritarianism” but the infantilism of, mostly, the self-describing “Left”, who just want to be told what to do by the Big Brother State. Those types are the core of the lockdown and facemask zealotry. A chance for them to see people bullied and bossed around, while retaining a figleaf of “caring sharing” fakery at the same time.

I have to admit that I did not like the look of this Brand person much, but if he is now waking up, then I warm to him (at least slightly).

White genocide. The Great Replacement. The Great Reset. Fight it or die (pretty soon)…

Just what I was blogging about recently. I shall be laughing when the UK and connected “antifascist” Twitter-twits are expelled. They have little or nothing else.

A now-deceased friend of mine, acquainted with both Mosley and his wife Diana in the 1950s, always said that Mosley’s mistake was to accentuate the “Man of Action” and military aspect of his character (genuine though that was: WW1 officer of both the Army and the Royal Flying Corps; wounded in action), while playing down his more intellectual side (which my friend thought reflected his overall character more, though in the late 1950s Mosley was, of course, over 60).

UK quarantine

Unless the Government simply props up airlines and travel companies (pointlessly), they are finished. Who on Earth will book a foreign holiday from the UK when that tourist (and family, if any) will now quite likely have to spend 10-14 days quarantined in a guarded hotel, and even have to pay for their own incarceration?! Forget it.

In fact, the country where the tourist is booked may also impose some such requirement, and at short notice…

In short, the travel and tourism sector, both domestic and overseas, is totally screwed, as are its huge number of employees.

Incidentally, the whole travel and tourism sector in the UK employs a total of 3.8 million people, about 11% of the entire UK workforce.

Very true. Recently, in the evening, I drove out of the nearby Waitrose store, about a mile or two from my humble home, and a woman crossed the road from the far pavement, riding a pushbike, and almost right in front of me. Dark clothing, and not a light showing on her bicycle; and no reflective strips on bicycle or clothing. When I overtook her and looked in the rear view mirror, she and her bicycle were almost invisible even at that short distance, despite some street lighting. Had I hit her, no doubt I would have been exonerated, but only after the nuisance and inconvenience of having to explain myself to the police.

The problem that literate, erudite System journalists such as Peter Hitchens have is that they think that this is a “debate”, and not a war…

There is an international conspiracy in existence. The Great Reset. The Great Replacement. White Genocide. NWO. ZOG. The censorship which is now pervasive and gathering pace is just part of that conspiracy.

Writing letters to corrupt MPs, tweeting, blogging too, while certainly necessary, will change little.

Not sure how true the above is, in that one could cite regimes in Africa or elsewhere, but the mere fact that we now start to ask “is the UK Govt. worse or less competent than those of African states?” rather makes the point…

It is true, though, that the British people now have no competent government and also no competent opposition parties.

…and the USA is in a better place to do that as compared to the UK because, when the American railways were closed (those that were, and that was the overwhelming majority) Federal law ensured that the railbed and the tracks (meaning the rails) were left. Bridges were mostly left too.

In Britain, both before and after the disastrous Beeching/Marples “reforms” of the 1960s [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts], rails were taken up, sleepers removed, and —in many cases— bridges destroyed. The land was then ploughed, or built upon, with a few favoured tracks being eventually repurposed as leisure trails for walkers and cyclists, as with the Camel Trail to Padstow [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camel_Trail].

This is President Trump’s chance —while he still is President— to cut through the tangle by granting Assange pardon.

As to Hitchens’ comment about journalists, how true. There are few real journalists around, these days. The journalistic trade (and Hitchens is right to term it a trade, and not a “profession”, as often seen) has become just a politically-correct, virtue-signalling bunch of “me-too” serfs.

The Bar, despite being traditionally a profession, and not a mere trade, is no better now.

Not one member of the Bar stood up publicly to support me after I was wrongfully disbarred in 2016 (following a conspiracy by a pack of Israel-supporting Jews; see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/). Not one…

Propaganda news and the migration-invasion

Remember how the msm went mad, a few days ago, about the exciting assault by Special Boat Service [SBS] commandos dropping onto the deck of the tanker off the Isle of Wight and taking prisoner the “pirate” stowaways who had intimidated the captain and almost taken control of his ship?

I remember it too. Plastered all over Sky News, BBC News etc. Sadly, it was another propaganda exercise. Oh, there was a ship all right, and there were about 9 Nigerian stowaways, who seem to have tried to take over the ship, frightening the captain and crew. There was also that brave assault by the SBS, in which its personnel “fast-roped” from helicopters straight down onto the deck of the tanker, and then took back the ship in a matter of minutes (Sky and BBC said 9 minutes; some reports said 7). All true.

Sadly, and it is no reflection on the SBS, its men and their operation, but that was all part of the imperial hypocrisy. It was used by the Government and msm to say to the public, “look at that! We are really tough on piracy and illegal immigration! Detained by the tough guys from the SBS! That will show them!”

Not really. Look at that tweet from Hampshire Police, above, and the linked report:

Seven men have been bailed for their part in the maritime security incident that took place on board the Nave Andromeda off the coast of the Isle of Wight on Sunday 25 October.

The seven arrested men, who are all Nigerian nationals, have subsequently been bailed in relation to the criminal investigation whilst investigators continue their enquiries, but will now remain detained under Border Force powers.” [Hampshire Police]. https://www.hampshire.police.uk/news/hampshire/news/news/2020/october/seven-men-bailed-following-maritime-security-incident-off-the-isle-of-wight/.

In other words, the invaders (the 7 noted, maybe a few others) have now all been released into the custody of the toytown Border Force. “Custody” implies (falsely) actual incarceration. No.

No illegal immigrants at all are presently being actually “detained”, in any real sense, in the UK; they are all in fact being put into hotels mothballed by reason of the crazy “Coronavirus” “measures” (effective shutdown). They are given shelter, food, clothing if necessary, and pocket-money of maybe £50 a week. Maybe more. Many homeless British people would find that acceptable, but are not given the option.

The immigration detention centres are all shut (indefinitely) supposedly because of the inflated “threat” by “the virus”.

Did the SBS really win at sea the other day? No. Not their fault, but the Nigerian migrant-invaders won. They have got what they wanted: they are in the UK, free to walk around, sheltered, fed, clothed, and even given money with which to buy celebratory drinks.

Incidentally, the msm was going mad about a family of Kurdish migrants that drowned off the coast of France. TV crews went to Dunquerque to interview their fellow migrant-invaders. They were portrayed as the unfortunate victims, the British people as oppressive for not wanting to be (further) invaded.

I heard on BBC World Service that that Kurdish family paid 24,000 Euros to smugglers to be brought to France and then given a boat (with outboard motor) with which to cross to the UK. They had sold all their possessions. All right, but I wonder how many British people in the UK could, even if they did sell all they had, raise over £20,000?

Those Kurds were not in any real sense “refugees”. They were economic migrants. In a sense, I do not “blame” them for wanting to come to Europe or the UK in particular; they obviously were trying to improve their lot. Fair enough, but we the British people are also entitled to say “No! This is our land“.

Really? I wonder why (((Kirsty Wark))) would have done that? It really is puzzling…

For once, perhaps surprisingly, I agree with half-Jew hypocrite Kamm. For my own reasons, though. I hope that the new “doormat” Labour leadership follows Kamm’s advice or injunction. Then Labour can fall to pieces, the result being that a real social-national movement can arise.

Blackballed in our “free” country

Keir Starmer Labour is just not breaking through to the voters. Unsurprisingly.

As I myself blogged at or around the time…

Sweden, that had and has no “lockdown”, no facemask nonsense, no legally-enforced “social distancing”, no closure of shops, schools or even bars…

This (below) made me laugh!

Gandhi, a supposed “idealist”, whose activities led to the deaths of millions, not only by reason of the Partition of 1947 but also by reason of the poverty that was created or maintained by backward economic policies for decades after Gandhi’s own death.

Mandela, a semi-trained African lawyer, as thick as two short planks. A would-be terrorist who was imprisoned for his part in a conspiracy to form a terrorist “army” and to create a race war in South Africa in the 1960s. Mandela, who was incapable of running a state, and who left behind a country sliding slowly to chaos and civil war.

Nice “political heroes”

Rewilding

A useful rewilding resource: https://www.rewildingbritain.org.uk/

Rewilding and Reafforestation of Parts of the UK

An extract from an article of 2013 by George Monbiot:

“You could argue that an intensification of farming is a response to rising population pressure: the need to produce more food has caused greater damage to wildlife. But this is where the madness kicks in: much of the habitat destruction for which farm policies are responsible has little or nothing to do with producing food.

The uplands of Britain are astonishingly unproductive. For example, 76% of the land in Wales is devoted to livestock farming, mostly to produce meat. But, astonishingly, by value Wales imports seven times as much meat as it exports. Six thousand years of nutrient stripping and erosion have left our hills so infertile that their productivity is miniscule. Even relatively small numbers of livestock can now keep the hills denuded.

Without subsidies, almost all hill-farming would cease. That’s not something I’m calling for, but I do believe it’s time we began to challenge the system and its outcomes. Among them is a policy that’s almost comically irrational and destructive.

The major funding that farmers receive is called the single farm payment, which is money given by European taxpayers to people who own land. These people receive a certain amount (usually around £200 or £300), for every hectare they own. To receive it, they must keep the land in what is called “Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition” (GAEC). It’s a term straight out of 1984.

Among the compulsory standards in the GAEC rules is “avoiding the encroachment of unwanted vegetation on agricultural land”. What this means is that if farmers want their money they must stop wild plants from returning. They don’t have to produce anything: to keep animals or to grow crops there. They merely have to prevent more than a handful of trees or shrubs from surviving, which they can do by towing cutting gear over the land.

If they want to expand the area eligible for this subsidy, and therefore make more money, they must get their tractors out and start clearing vegetation. From my kayak in Cardigan Bay I have often watched a sight that Neolithic fishermen would have witnessed: towers of smoke rising from the hills as the farmers burn tracts of gorse and trees in order to claim more public money. The single farm payment is a perfectly designed scheme for maximum ecological destruction.

[Why Britain’s Barren Uplands Have Farming Subsidies To Blame, George Monbiot, The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/georgemonbiot/2013/may/22/britain-uplands-farming-subsidies

George Monbiot is quite right about subsidized farming. In relation to the upland and hill areas [relatively similar areas, but often taken to be different in terms of specific UK farming conditions: https://www.nationalsheep.org.uk/know-your-sheep/uk-sheep-farming/], the farming lobby will say that the land there is only suitable for sheep, so if the UK wants to produce food at a maximized level, then sheep farming is essential and can only exist if subsidized.

There are various aspects to all this, most of which are addressed in the George Monbiot article (above). The upland/hill areas are not very productive (generally, the higher they are above sea level, the less productive); they can support food animals other than sheep, in principle (deer, highland cattle, game birds etc) if not denuded of vegetation; the upland and hill farmers are only surviving by reason of a fairly generous (they might disagree) but environmentally-mad subsidy system.

In broad terms, the single farm payment gives the farmer on average about £150 an acre (2019 value), so a small farmer (and most UK upland and hill farms are small), who has about 200 acres, will get about £30,000 in subsidy (leaving aside the various official or other definitions of what constitutes a “subsidy”— see Notes, below). The actual net profit from farming itself on such a farm comes to something like £3,000, maybe even less. It’s minimal. Some farmers have only 100 acres, thus reducing their subsidy-income to maybe £15,000 and their real farming income to as little as £1,500.

The conclusion, surely, is that subsidies should be eliminated. They are disastrous for wildlife, give the country little in terms of food production and in fact give the already-wealthy farmers on the more favoured lowlands the bulk of the money (a large estate of say 10,000 acres might receive as much as £1,500,000 a year in EU subsidy). However, this article is about rewilding and reafforestation, not an overview of the whole agricultural sector.

There are UK and EU “subsidies” or grants for such activities as tree planting, but these are far less generous than the ones given for (nominal or actual) farming.

It seems harsh, on the face of it, that small farmers should face having to give up their way of life (in some cases, a way of life that has generations of history and custom behind it), but they will have been preceded after all by those working in other sectors, including coal mining, steel production etc, and now retail work. Why should huge amounts of public money be provided to farmers just because they bleat that without the money they cannot survive and would have to get other work?

The irony is that most farmers vote “Conservative” and are among those most ready to talk about “welfare” “scroungers” etc! It often seems to me that farmers generally want it both ways, to receive money from public funds merely as an entitlement for being holders of land (either freeholders or tenants), but on the other hand want no official interference with how they farm, because they run private businesses!

It has long been accepted that the farming lobby, and especially the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) is one of the most effective lobby groups in UK politics at national level.

Alternative uses for marginal land

After WW1, the UK was almost denuded of forest, having only 5% cover. The government set up the Forestry Commission in 1919 to address the domestic timber shortage, rather than for aesthetic or environmental reasons. Thus were born the typical blocks of forest seen in Northern England, Scotland, Wales: mostly Norway Spruce and Sitka Spruce. Though better than nothing, such coniferous reafforestation does not do much for wildlife, though the trees themselves can be, if not cut, longlasting (a Norway Spruce in Sweden may be the oldest —though regenerated— tree on Earth, dating back nearly 10,000 years).

The forest cover in the UK has increased markedly since 1919, to about 13% of land. The Forestry Commission itself and its now-devolved Scottish equivalent manage nearly 2 million acres of forest and, in some areas, have replanted with broadleaf trees which will encourage a greater biodiversity.

In addition, there have been a few large-scale initiatives formulated and put into action. There are a number of “community forests” (some created from bits and pieces of land) not all in public ownership but all of which have some public access: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community_forests_in_England

The Heart of England Forest (mostly in Warwickshire) is one superb initiative, the vision of one man, the late Felix Dennis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Dennis].

Another new wooded belt is the National Forest, planted in a number of linked areas North East of Birmingham:

In addition, some very large and altruistic landowners, such as a Dane who owns over 220,000 acres in Scotland alone (over a dozen Highland estates), have exciting plans both for reafforestation and for wildlife recovery, even to the extent of importing wolves, lynx, bears, beavers etc.

There are many smaller projects around, such as the wood created by Brian May, the Queen guitarist, in Dorset, being planted and growing on land May bought as a gift in trust, and which was originally going to be a housing estate (nb. were Britain not flooded with unwanted immigrants and their offspring, it would not be thought “necessary” to build on beautiful areas of countryside).

Forests are not a waste of land…

George Monbiot has written about how upland forests and woods (or even areas of smaller vegetation such as bushes) delay the passage of rainwater to lower levels, protecting those lower levels from destructive floodwater.

Wild areas can provide food for people. Not just game animals, birds and fish (if permitted and/or in time of dire necessity), but mushrooms, fruits, wild vegetables etc.

Forests not only have amenity and aesthetic value, but are havens for wildlife of all types. In particular, the parts of the country that are relatively marginal for farming should be far more heavily wooded than they are. Animals, birds, fish, insects all thrive, given half a chance.

There are huge areas of the UK suitable for rewilding and/or re-afforestation. Not only in Scotland. Wales is especially blessed with upland and hill areas suitable for such projects. There are parts of England also suitable, such as the South West peninsula, within which there are areas where the population is surprisingly sparse, such as the Hartland Peninsula in West Devon, on the Atlantic coast. It is true also of the moors of Devon and Cornwall, but they tend at present to be under National Park or other restrictive control.

Rewilding and reafforestation are not inimical to the livelihoods of existing local people, who can derive benefit via catering to tourists, managed and sustainable forestry, wildlife protection jobs etc; whereas the present land use often benefits only small groups of farmers and landowners (via subsidies, and/or via the use of land for commercial driven shoots).

Rewilding is not just a matter of afforestation. Other types of landscape can also be rewilded: marshes, river estuaries etc. However, the forest is the key, whether it be managed forest or forest left to grow completely wild.
