After the Vaja storm, which destroyed millions of trees in late 2018, a terrible insect spread through our forests, finding an ideal habitat amongst the fallen trees. This extremely educational hike is accompanied by a forestry guide, offering clear, practical and interesting information on the blight that has been plaguing our forests for several years.
