The value of hedgerows

Whole books could (and have) be written about the value of hedges. We focus on the value hedgerows hold for wildlife, and have categorised this into three main themes: connectivity value, structural value and wildlife value. These themes form the basis of the health score that is automatically and instantly generated when you complete the Great British Hedgerow Survey.
