Glenariff is a valley of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Known for lush farmland, this glacially carved glen has a mouth on the North Channel of the Irish Sea at the town of Waterfoot. Here is the view from the Glenariff Forest Park with an anonymous seated human figure contemplating the landscape. Foreground are the stumps of mature trees cut by the forest service to control the oomycete plant pathogen Phytophthora ramorum. We visited June 2014, the year before, October 2013, the Belfast Telegraph reported "Northern Ireland is close to the point where it will be impossible to eradicate a virulent disease from the forests where it has taken hold." Glenariff held one of those forests. The foreground tree stumps are victims of that struggle.
