Fantastic examples of rare trees and fauna
In the Northumberland National Park, you’ll find areas of woodland safe from grazing animals and tree felling.
A lot of effort has gone into saving the last of these rare woodlands. Most can be found along river banks or upland burns and cleughs, where felling trees and grazing animals is difficult.
A healthy woodland contains trees of all ages, so that seedlings can replace older trees as they die. Animals such as deer and livestock eat seedlings and ground flora before they can grow. We help landowners decide how to protect woodlands through fencing, where to plant new native woodlands and how to apply for grants.
