I asked Matthew about the self-seeded trees in the lower field.

He said the brambles will move in on them and create a thicket which'll stick at being a thicket for twenty years before it graduates to being a wood. And that'll be wonderful for the wildlife. Alternatively we can spend a lot of money getting Mr X to come in with his industrial mower and lay everything waste.

"Have it jest as you've a mind to, but..." It was fairly clear which course he was recommending.

And really I'm of that mind too.

Talking about brambles, I was picking blackberries yesterday.
