We want to protect our hedgerows and make them important again.
Hedgerows form a vital part of our landscape, but they’re at risk from neglect, damage and removal. We’re taking action to halt this decline.
Since 2017, we’ve been working in partnership with the Woodland Trust on the Long Forest project. Together, we’ve brought communities and landowners together to survey, create and restore hedgerows.
None of this would’ve been possible without the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
A big part of Long Forest has been raising awareness of the importance of hedgerows.
We’ve created a range of free resources to help!
Download the Long Forest app to help us collect vital information about the condition and species makeup of hedgerows in Wales.
Carrying out a hedgerow survey is quick and easy, thanks to our handy species ID guide. Just tell us what you see and where you see it. The app can be used in every corner of Wales – even where there’s no mobile phone signal.
You can download the app for free!
Free garden packages are still available to community groups and organisations.
