The MOREhedges project is intended to create new ecological links with woodland in the surrounding landscape. New hedging must connect with:
- at least 0.2 hectares of existing or newly planted woodland (0.1ha in Scotland)
- woodland via established hedgerows within 500m of the new hedge.
You must plant at least 100 metres of new hedgerow in a single run.
We cannot support the replanting or gapping up of existing hedgerows.
We offer a subsidy of 75% against the total cost of the plants, guards and support. We cannot arrange or fund fencing or planting contractors.
