Tree planting is perhaps what the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is most well known for. Since starting in 1996 the trust has helped to plant around 1.5 million broadleaf trees, creating native woodlands of all shapes and sizes throughout the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale.
Located in Whashton Wood, this project is based just outside the national park, around four miles from Richmond.
4,000 trees will be planted in winter 2021-22 creating a broadleaf woodland with panoramic views of Richmondshire and a vital habitat for wildlife. The trees planted here will be native species including: Sessile Oak, Alder, Bird Cherry, Rowan, Scots Pine, Hornbeam and Aspen.
The woodland is also part of YDMT’s Plastic Free Woodlands project, supported by the European Outdoor Conservation Association, which aims to create woodlands free of plastic.
