Plant airlift to restore Peak District moorlands

The Natural England website has details of the operation to airlift   300,000 moorland plants onto the Peak District and South Pennines Moors.

This is not an option for most people, but it is great to see what can be done where there is a budget and enthusiasm.   The justification for this work is that arguably, these moorland areas have a lot of catching up to do to reach the state of other areas, which did not suffer the same levels of industrial pollution.
