Walking specialist has branched out in the Dales with tree-planting scheme

Businesses are making their mark in the Yorkshire Dales by helping to create new native woodlands.

Tree planting in Malhamdale.
Celebrating ten years of adding its weight to conservation is Harrogate outdoor adventure specialist TeamWalking which has ensured it leaves more than its footprints on the landscape. Over the years, it has dedicated a new native tree for every new client..

Owner and Inn Way guidebooks author Mark Reid was joined by clients from Pro-Development to plant new trees in Malhamdale to celebrate the past ten years.

TeamWalking supports the Dales Woodland Restoration Programme, which is delivered and funded by a partnership including Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission. The programme aims to double the amount of broadleaf woodland in the Dales by 2020.
 
Mark has been walking in the Dales for the past 20 years, researching and writing his guidebooks and taking individuals and groups on guided hill walks, covering 15,000 miles of paths and taking 6,000 people out walking.

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust chief executive David Sharrod said: “Planting a tree is one of the very best things you can do for the environment. We hope clients of TeamWalking will come back to the Dales to visit these trees as they grow into thriving woodland habitats in years to come.”
 
Businesses interested in supporting the project can find out more by contacting the trust on 015242 51002.
