The melted snow in these woods is not the only cause of the flood. Most of this water originates on Houndkirk Moor. Just above here is the A625 and the particular section is regularly flooded causing potential problems for traffic.
Houndkirk is of course a treeless area. There seems no plan to plant trees; all signs are that it's valued as a sheep habitat.
Very close by SWT has been felling trees. No comment necessary.
