The North York Moors National Park is an area of land in North Yorkshire, England, covering 1,436km² (554 sq mi). The Moors were granted National Park status in 1952.

England's Most Wooded National Park though named and famed for moors, North York is in fact England’s most wooded national park. Forests cover 22 percent of its area and native oak, ash, birch, and rowan fill streamsides and valleys to create a canopy for shade-loving plants. Most of the park’s forests were planted during the 20th century as a timber resource.
