Connectivity- Landowners

There are many landowners along the Haldon ridge and in the Teign Valley that are already making more space for nature. It is hoped that by being mindful of the effect that their land use has on wildlife and their position within the wider landscape that mosaics of good habitats can be connected and we can create a ribbon of wilder land across Devon Wildland.


If you are a landowner and are already committed to making more space for nature and would like to share you experience and ideas with us, please get in touch. If you are a landowner (even of a small parcel of land) and would like to visit one of our core wilder sites please contact us.  Many of the landowners who are working hard to allow nature to thrive want to do so 'under the radar' and out of the spotlight... so if you would like to get involved but would prefer to keep a low profile please also get in touch and we will keep your work confidential. We are keen to link up with as many landowners within Devon Wildland so we can identify the location of the potential connected wilder ribbon.

Alternatively there are many people that work on the land that have the potential to be a huge influence on how wildlife thrives. This might include land managers, forestry or agricultural contractors and we would love to hear about your experiences and the realities of working within Devon Wildland and what you perceive to be the barriers to nature.

The Devon Wildland Tree Hub grows native trees from local seed. Volunteers help collect the seeds, grow on and nurture the seedlings and it is hoped that these saplings will be provided to landowners across the Haldon ridge, and planted to create the ribbon of connectivity. If you feel we can help with tree planting to create a connected landscape on your land, get in touch.                


These organisations are experienced in helping landowners to take action and to create more space for nature.

Each year Moor Trees collect tens of thousands of local tree seeds to grow in their community tree nurseries.  These trees are provided for woodland planting and restoration schemes.


Moor Trees provide relevant information regarding grant applications and woodland design, and planting by their volunteer groups.

Moor Trees build biodiversity by working with local people. Every year they work with hundreds of volunteers of all ages and abilities. Moor Trees have helped plant sites along the Haldon Ridge.

Moor Meadows mission is to celebrate the wonderful diversity of native plants and wildlife to be found in meadows and to help reverse the trend of wildlife declines.

The Moor Meadows community group was established in 2015 by a small friendly group of local people on Dartmoor. Their aim is to help each other in conserving, restoring and creating wildflower rich grasslands in the landscape of Dartmoor and beyond.

Moor Meadows are a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers passionate about meadows. A meadows email exchange forum was set up so members can communicate with each other, plus a series of Meadow Open Days, informative talks, inspirational conferences and practical workshops in order to increase wildlife knowledge and habitat management skills.
