This report summarizes a project initiated by English Nature to stimulate positive management of juniper colonies in Northumbria. This involved the comprehensive assessment of all juniper sites in County Durham and Northumberland, the identification of population trends and the development of positive management on juniper SSSIs and the wider countryside. The 1994 surveys of juniper colonies in Northumbria (excluding the large stands of Upper Teesdale NNR) aimed to repeat surveys undertaken in 1973. This enabled the direct comparison of data from eighty-three sites to quantify demographic change and confirm suspected population trends in juniper populations across the region.
