Plant foreign trees 'to save our forests' - Scotsman.com News

SCOTTISH forests should be replanted with Lebanon cedar, Oriental spruce, Macedonian pine, Greek fir, Mexican white pine, Italian alder, Shagbark hickory, Oriental beech, Eucalyptus and Hungarian oak and not native species, according to a leading expert in a Forestry Commission study.
The imported trees must form a vital part of a dramatic expansion of tree cover as global warming changes the Scottish environment, says Professor Sir David Read.

If you ignore the ranting adherents of the Green God and look at real climate dat we're likely to have around 20 years of cooler weather (like we did in the 60s and 70s) and then it will warm up. So planting trees that prefer a warmer climate is a bit dumb just now. Wait until around 2025-2030 and do it then so they can grow during the next warm cycle. Stick with native trees at the moment.

BBC gardening progs have been pumping this nonsense out for the last decade, drought resistant gardens and other such rubbish.If anybody bothered I'd sue if I was them as surely nothing survived the last couple of years.
