Case Study: Managing hedges on an extended rotation – Using an excavator mounted finger bar and tree shear

Farm Wildlife


In recent years I have taken over the management of the family farm. The farm business consists of 350 acres, split over two different holdings, both with fantastic hedgerow networks that support lots of wildlife but with very different management needs. I wanted to find a way to manage the hedges myself that would be cost-effective and benefit wildlife.
