Devon hedges and modern farming, management cycle and fencing

Devon Hedges

Abstract

For farmers, hedges have both advantages and disadvantages. This section describes these, discusses where the balance lies, and presents ways in which hedges may become a valued part of farm businesses. It also suggests ways in which the direct costs of retaining and managing hedges can be reduced. Finally, it gives practical ideas about the ways hedge management can be planned, in particular introducing the concept of managing hedges on a long term cycle, to keep them healthy and productive. Hedge fencing is also covered.
