Wildscapes

where nature, people and business flourish

'I am impressed with the range and quality of work that Wildscapes delivered on the 18 sites of the Coalfield Heathland Project. They worked efficiently to help transform post-industrial sites to wildlife-rich spaces and protect the heathland across South and West Yorkshire. Their ability to adapt to the contrasting conditions of these sites was exceptional and they collaborated well alongside the other organisations involved in the project.'

 

Roy Mosley, Coalfield Heathland Project Manager

Heathland Management for Natural England

Client
Coalfield Heathland Project and Natural England

We specialise in carrying out land management works on moorland and heathland sites, and were the preferred contractor for the Coalfield Heathland Project. We worked on all of the 18 Coalfield Heathland sites across South and West Yorkshire, carrying out works from fencing to silver birch clearance and delivering herbicide treatments.

We worked with groups of volunteers to help them learn about heathland management and have taught volunteers how to carry out related conservation works enabling them to develop their skills on these special sites.

 
We have completed contracts for Natural England spraying re-growth and ragwort (Senecio jacobaea) pulling at Hatfield Moor within the Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve. We have understanding of the delicate nature of moorland habitats and the care which needs to be taken when working on these sites.
