Hedgerows are hidden heroes nestled within our towns, cities and countryside. They absorb carbon and air pollution, provide wildlife habitats and make us feel better with their lush greenery.
But to get everyone passionate about hedgerows, we need people to notice these leafy lovelies growing right under our noses.
So in this first National Hedgerow Week, we called on people to get curious about their local hedges, and asked them to #TalkToTheHedge with our fun and informative guide to chatting to hedges.
If you can’t plant hedgerows yourself, let us do it for you by making a donation to The Tree Council’s ‘Pledge a Hedge’ campaign and help us champion hedgerows into the future. Donate £15 and you’ll be helping us to plant 1 metre of fantastic hedgerow.Donate now
