Unsightly Hedgerow Cutting

Many people, especially Tree Wardens are concerned by the unsightly flailing of hedgerows which happens every year all over Suffolk and beyond.

In some ways the management of hedgerows may depend on what incentives there are from central government for landowners to either remove hedgerows or maintain them and plant more. The former was the case a number of years ago but there may be more incentives to plant hedgerows with the forthcoming Environmental Land Management (ELM) scheme?? Who knows?
