Aiming High for Hedgerows

Agroforestry Tent (PF B12)

Hedgerows are an iconic part of the British landscape with lots of practical, ecological and aesthetic value. But an enormous amount of a once extensive hedgerow network has been lost. To address this, in its Environmental Improvement Plan (2023) the Government has set the target to create or restore 30,000 miles of hedgerow by 2037 and 45,000 miles by 2050. We will discuss what it will take to meet this target, and why it is important to do so. The opportunity will be created for farmers and others to share their ideas on the importance of this agenda and what has worked or not worked from their perspective
