  • This hedgerow health check uses the simple information you tell us about each hedge. We look at hedgerow condition for both it's structural health and it's potential benefits to our native wildlife. For this reason we have broken the overall score down into three sores: a connectivity score, a structural score and a wildlife score. This means that when we look at the data, we will be able to see where and how improvements can be made so that our hedgerow network can best fulfil these roles.
