 Additional Notes The isolated juniper here is large healthy and extremely ancient.The survival of this solitary juniper is due to the fact that it grows on the top edge of a small but vertical cliff and is more or less inaccessible to rabbits and sheep. However rabbits can reach surprisingly high when snow drifts against the cliff and the risk of ring barking of these isolated survivors of the Early Post Glacial Vegetation of Britain is high.
