Sad time for me in Narnia!

This time two years ago I had went back up to Narnia aka Mourne Mountains after the devastating fire that raged for days to find nearly all of my phantom planted trees burned, I had hundreds dotted around this part of the mountain that were destroyed, it was such a sad and disheartened time for me.

I had a dream and vision back then to make a part of the mountain green with trees, environmental graffiti that would be seen from all around the country, that dream is up in smoke!

I dont go back near the place now to phantom plant, apparently its been common practice for hundreds years to burn mountains like this every 12 years or so to keep it for grazing animals, we think our mountains our natural, far from it, all our mountain ranges on these islands at one time was covered in trees, man burned them all for grazing over years!

Now at this part of the mountain they dont only have sheep now trampling all over the trees but they have now introduced cattle as well, no tree growing up will ever stand a chance, then they say on their websites please stick to the pathways when walking the mountains to prevent erosion but they have giants beasts running all over it!

The sheep and cattle are doing more damage to the land and ecology up in Narnia than any human foot!

I got told off by another ecologists once for taking cuttings from the very rare native junipers in Narnia, I want to grow them up and go back up and replant them in different places in the mountains, places where I know sheep and cattle cant get too and stamp all over them.

I was practically threatened with legal action for doing this as they are such an endangered species and my intentions was to spread the junipers but do these ecologists seem to think the sheep and cattle know what junipers are and they step over them with care, is that what they think?

If these are such an endangered plant species should these ecologists not be campaigning to keep the sheep and cattle off certain parts of the mountain as its the overgrazing animals that are wrecking the place, but then do you know what they do, certain types of grass grows as a result of sheep and cattle grazing as they trample down every type of tree that tries to grow naturally, if we leave the land alone and remove the cattle the land naturally reverts back to a forest, but then some butterfly comes in or a moth that likes these types of grasslands and they will say that all this maintaining of this man made zoo type landscape that its all to save certain grasses, moths and butterflies from going extinct!

Who is it that says this is how our land should look, whos fancy is this? 

The whole ecology of the land is about the dollar really and totally goes against what nature wants to do!

Anyhow rant over but the more I look into all this world of ecology many of them for me are office pen pushers and have probably never touched the land with their bare feet before!
