About Tree planting in Upper Wharfedale

Come and help plant trees in the wild uplands of Upper Wharfedale.

You'll be working alongside our Rangers to plant trees in some of our remote upland gills and becks in Langstrothdale. Be prepared for some walking, quite a bit of it uphill, and a full day out in the wilds surrounded by moorland and wildlife!

About the accommodation
