In Dockens Water valley, below Freeworms Hill, the National Parks Authority stripped and harvested the dried Fern; once such a prized resource, its removal was strictly controlled and individual quotas assigned. It would be good to see this practice return to the forest, as the Fern communities are virulent and have become invasive; huge areas of the forest must have looked like this in the past.
