TYPICAL PROJECT - Click on images to enlarge


The hedgerow was planted in conjunction with the construction of two wildlife ponds.

The hedgerow acts as a habitat for wildlife, as a boundary marker, and as a screen to derelict farm buildings. A mixture of Hawthorn, Hazel, Guelder Rose, Dog Rose, Wild Privet, Ash and Walnut were planted.

The landowner (the local Tree Warden) involved as many local children as possible, though the majority of the work was done by the grownups and the digger.

The original birch, walnut and disease-resistant elm were retained.

Pictures taken 5 years after the original planting are also shown.y
