Scrub Management

Discover the benefits of scrub and how to optimise it for wildlife.

Join Will Cranstoun, Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s west Suffolk sites manager for an engaging day on this beautiful reserve learning the benefits of scrub and, importantly, how best to manage it.

Scrub is incredibly valuable for a wide range of wildlife, providing a continued source of nectar, fruits, seeds and importantly shelter as well as breeding and roosting sites. The transitory stage between open habitats such as grassland and closed canopy woodland, scrub can include a wide range of varied plant species of different ages. It makes up part of the vital habitat mosaics that invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds need to thrive.

Leaving a space for scrub on your land, on the fringes of local woodland and in your own gardens can make such a difference to wildlife. Will will explain how you can optimise scrub over time to ensure its ongoing value to wildlife as without management scrub will eventually become woodland.
