TeamWalking celebrate 10yrs planting Dales trees for each corporate customer

The owner of an outdoor adventure specialist and author of pub walk guidebooks, Mark Reid, is making his mark on the Yorkshire Dales landscape by helping to create new native woodlands linked to his corporate customers.

For the last 10 years TeamWalking has dedicated a new native tree for every new client, helping to create new woodlands throughout the Dales.

Mark was joined by clients from Pro-Development to plant new trees in Malhamdale to celebrate 10 years of support for Yorkshire Dales woodlands.

Mark Reid said: “I’ve been walking in the Yorkshire Dales for the past 20 years, first of all researching and writing my ‘Inn Way’ guidebooks, and then for the last 10 years taking individuals and groups out on guided hill walks.

"In that time I’ve covered 15,000 miles of paths and taken over 6,000 people out walking, and it is such a privilege to be able to share this beauty with the people I take out. But I firmly believe that everyone who enjoys the Dales should give a little back to help maintain this treasured landscape for future generations. So, for every corporate client I take out onto the hills, I plant a native tree in the Yorkshire Dales on their behalf.”

The TeamWalking tree scheme supports the Dales Woodland Restoration Programme, which is delivered and funded by a partnership including Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT), 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.

David Sharrod, Chief Executive of YDMT, said: “We’re very grateful to TeamWalking for being so committed to giving something back to the Yorkshire Dales over the last decade, and for encouraging others to do so too. 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.”  

The trees dedicated as part of the scheme will help to create new native, broadleaf woodlands. The businesses will also have the opportunity to come back to the Dales to visit the new woodlands.
