ICAP at Mallerstang Common

This is a native broadleaved moorland project on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The project involves several pockets of planting, and has been made possible by agreement between the landowner and the grazing rights holders. The woodlands will be managed for wildlife conservation, and will contribute to improved water quality by preventing run-off pollution.


Validated under the Woodland Carbon Code.
