A few junpier trees survive in Northumberland National Park and we work to protect these from grazing animals. Juniper grows and very slowly and, despite being spiky, the young trees are quite edible by stock and roe deer.
Recently, new jumiper trees have been introduced from local stock into ancient and new native woodlands alike to safeguard the species for the future.
