Traditional Orchard Project in England: The creation of an inventory to support the UK Habitat Action Plan (NECR077)

In 2007 traditional orchards were designated as a Priority Habitat under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP). One of the first aims of the Habitat Action Plan (HAP) is to create a habitat inventory to provide a baseline to:

  • enable future changes to be measured; and
  • identify priorities for future conservation actions.

The People’s Trust for Endangered Species, supported by Natural England, has now created a provisional inventory of traditional orchards throughout England.

This report:

  • Sets out the aims of the Traditional Orchard Inventory Project.
  • Gives details of the methodology used to map the habitat.
  • Discusses the outcomes of the work.
