Introduction to Hedgerows (Bushy Park)

Hedgerows are boundary features of the landscape and their history is usually reflected in their wildlife. Learn about how hedgerows were created – or planted, their trees and flora, and of species that help to indicate their origin. We will look at how to create a hedgerow, even within a small site, how to manage the hedgerow and how to encourage wildlife. Based in Bushy Park.

Course fee includes a copy of the FSC fold out chart: Guide to Hedgerows.
