Clearing forests for conservation

From the ClimateArk:

The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) is accused of causing massive environmental damage as it seeks to clear hundreds of acres of non-native confireous woodlands to restore traditional heather habitats.

For me, it reflected a larger question: that of so-called plague species in non-native habitats. In this case, it is just human stupidity which has created the problem in the first place.
