Hedges – Cultivating Cutting and Carbon Capture

As linear landscape features, hedges bring with them an array of benefits, whether it is in the context of climate change, biodiversity decline or improved productivity. However, these benefits are reliant on good overall management. In this podcast, a part of the Hedges – Cultivating, Cutting & Carbon Capture series the Farm Advisory Service (FAS) talks to Nigel Adams, Countryside Management about all things hedges. Topics of discussion include current condition of Britain’s hedges, advice for those looking to establish new hedges, the options for hedgerow management and restoration, the multiple benefits of hedges and some gripping conservation success figures.
