Take action to protect and conserve the Exmoor National Park:

Plastic free trees

Earlier this year we joined Campaign for National Parks and other national park societies across the UK to campaign against the use of plastic in forestry.

It is possible – the new trees planted by Exmoor National Park at Bye Wood are being protected with biodegradable tree guards. Reducing the amount of single use plastic used in tree planting is critical to reducing microplastics and pollutants in our landscape and waterways. If you are looking at planting trees yourself this winter and want advice, read this highly informative booklet below by the Forest Plastics Working Group.
