Our annual hedgerow campaign has been running since 2007, creating safe corridors and habitats for wildlife, reducing soil erosion around agricultural fields and contributing to increased biodiversity.
Working closely with sponsors and volunteers, we have planted thousands of metres of native hedgerow species such as hawthorn, field maple, holly, blackthorn, hazel and wild privet.
The hedgerow campaign runs in a three-stage annual cycle
Hedgerows are a relatively late addition to the local landscape, first planted in the 1700s to protect the apple blossom from prevailing winds as the cider industry grew. Unfortunately, Dutch elm disease and the Great Storm of 1987 had a major detrimental impact, resulting in the loss and degradation of many hedges.
Did you know that you can help us by volunteering; a healthy and fulfilling way to make a meaningful contribution to Jersey Trees for Life and the wider local community?
You can also support us by signing up for an annual membership, with proceeds helping us maintain and grow throughout the year.
