Management of the moorlands is essential and can result in improved grazing and lead to a reduction in unwanted pests. Management can be used to shepherd stock and will help sheep come off the mountain in better condition. The same management has a positive impact on wildlife who live on the heather moorlands. Continuous management will also reduce the risk of devastating wildfire and the long term effects they can have
Whilst management has been more difficult in recent years for a variety of reasons including changes in agricultural practices and the amount of labour available, it is still possible and important. These guidelines will hopefully help you through the process of cutting, burning, controlling bracken and reporting illegal off-road use.
