Pest or provider?

Not a native to Dorset, but found on most areas of heathland. If left unchecked they eventually shade out the heather and other plants - not good for the 6 native reptiles that live on this particular heath. However they do provide shelter and/or food for other species such as Siskins and Crossbills.
