Working the land

Hedge restoration

In the big field where we have some resident sheep belonging to our land tenant there are large section of hedgerow which are solely ferns no trees left…. Shelter belt diminished and some areas look like failed laying of the previous trees…..

We managed to get some free hedgerow trees around 30…. Holly, hawthorn, blackthorn, dog rose, dog wood and hazels and James and I got planting….

We created channels in the ferns for added baby trees protection… From our wooly friends etc…



Then we planted the trees at regular intervals and added protective measures!!


All the while watched by our sheepy friends from a safe distance across the field!!
