Our woodland work

The North York Moors is one of the most wooded of England's National Parks, covering about 23 percent of the landscape – that’s over 300 square kilometres of trees!

We're working to increase this percentage by creating better connected and more resilient woodland habitats through:

  • woodland creation
  • existing woodland and ancient tree management
  • ancient woodland restoration.

Our aim

Over the next 100 years we're working to create 7,000 ha of new native woodland - that's over 5 million trees!
