This year we have been fortunate to secure funding for hedging in species rich grasslands and protected SSSI land through Bettys Trees for Life. We have already secured local landowner agreements to plant over 700m of hedging this season which consists of 6 trees per metre. We hope to plant over 5km of new hedging every season to create vital nature corridors and wildlife habitats to link up existing woodlands, prevent surface runoff and create effective stock and deer fencing. The humble hedge will last a lifetime if looked after and maintained and contribute to a healthier balance
