Fault­less Falk­lands

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

THE pho­to­graph il­lus­trat­ing Charles QuestRit­son’s ar­ti­cle about trees on the Falk­land Is­lands (In the gar­den, Novem­ber 9) is of New Is­land, which lies off the shores of West Falk­land. With its tow­er­ing cliffs, des­o­late, sweep­ing sky­lines, se­cluded sandy coves and teem­ing wildlife, it’s one of the most beau­ti­ful places that I have been for­tu­nate enough to visit.

To in­tro­duce trees and change for­ever this wild and windswept land­scape would surely be a ter­ri­ble act of van­dal­ism. There are too few wilder­ness ar­eas left in the world; pull on an­other coat, I say, and rel­ish the drama of this won­der­ful place with­out try­ing to tame it with trees. Nicholas Tust­ing, Bed­ford­shire
