Conservation works

  • we cut back dense scrub in winter to create clear ground for young heather to return
  • we spread locally sourced seed on bare ground
  • we treat bracken and birch in summer to prevent them dominating our Heathland sites
  • cattle and ponies graze seasonally to help with scrub and grass control
