Case study



Sheep in pasture front cover

This case study looks at how planting trees can benefit sheep farming.

It focuses on farmer David Noble who farms at over 1,000 feet on the northern foot of the Lake District’s Skiddaw Range.

We learn how David has planted trees and hedgerows to protect his flocks from the harsh weather conditions, as well as improve the condition of his land and the surrounding environment.
