  • "The isolated clumps of pines of three to five Scots pines often to be seen on high places in Wales and adjoining counties were planted for a political purpose. During the rebellions of 1715 and 1745 many families in those parts secretly sympathised with the Jacobites and showed it by planting little groups of pines at prominent points on their estates, so that those in the know could estimate the number of their supporters." - Sir Hugh Rankin, Radnorshire - The Countryman, Autumn 1955, p.188.
