Hedgerows have been in decline for many years in the UK yet they are extremely useful habitats to many of our native animal species. By establishing a hedgerow of any size the wildlife value of a school or other site will “rocket”. Maintaining the levels of wildlife within urban areas is becoming increasingly important for a range of plant and animal species.
- Wildlife value enhanced for animal species by providing shelter and food
- More plant species find a home on your site as the hedgerow matures
- Children brought “closer to nature”
- New scope for learning
