Hedges and Hedgelaying A Guide to Planting, Management and Conservation


Hedges and Hedgelaying A Guide to Planting, Management and Conservation by Murray MacLean

In recent years there has been a much greater appreciation of the enormous contribution that hedges make to the countryside. Today, their beauty, their ability to provide wind protection and contain livestock, their environmental importance and their significance as a wildlife habitat, are all widely recognized. Not surprisingly, this transformation in the way we view hedges has, in turn, produced a welcome revival in the ancient craft of hedgelaying.
