Here is where we will make available data and reports from survey work involving the Cluster
Tree Work Approval: Jan 22
As part of our NFM work, we will be using woody materials ie trees from on the cluster. Any tree work in our area has to have permission from YDNPA.
We also have wider plans in conjunction with The Swaledale Estate to resume management of the bankside alders on the Arkle Beck to increase resilience and to help reduce erosion.
All these works are currently covered under the following YDNPA permissions.
