Do dormice come into the house? We get mice in the attic and trap and release them, is there anything special we should do if we find a dormouse?
Absolutely gutted to see a neighbour grubbing up several ancient hawthorns from relic hedgerows this summer.
Are we making progress in halting hedge cutting. Especially the hard cutting back by tractor?
Most hedges are cut every second year now
My screen didn't show the link to OS + landscape Please may we have it again?
Please remember:Any questions you have can be placed here at any time and we will cover them during a Q&A near the end of the talk.This talk is being recorded so you will be able to watch back if you missed anything.
I have a small farm and have laid lots of hedges but would be interested to know what alternatives there are to flail cutting. The contractor I use only has this method. It seems so brutal. (I do cut in rotation).
Could garden hedges be helpful for wildlife? If so what species would be best?
QUESTION - as farmers / contractors are the ones managing the vast majority of hedges how do you advise they change their normal practice of cutting before autumn and removing the food bank of berries and at the exact same height every year?
How do you cut laid hedges?
What to do with a hedge which is now a line of trees which the hedge cutting man says is too high to cut now. Sorry so many questions!
Is there a less labour intensive rejuvenation of hedges than laying
Can you provide a pdf or ppt of the slides used?
hi Jenny, yes we will see if this might be possible, thank you. the talk is being recorded also.
is it possible to lay an old hedge that has maybe never been laid before and has some fairly old plants in it and has maybe got a bit gappy?
How would you recommend to best manage hedgerows at roadsides e.g. on narrow country roads where the hedge is immediately adjacent to the road edge
How is the survey data used - would landowners have any concerns about results being shared?
any thoughts on using digger mounted tree shear for coppicing hedges?
Can all hedgerow plants be coppiced?
can you use the app to manage garden hedges
Thanks so much Megan :)
what do we do to get this information to hedge cutting contractors? Martin steer
Where can we find out more about hedgerow protection?
Could you possibly tell us a little more (or signpost) to how we can find out more about the Hedge Afternoons? Would they be suitable for a (big) public park area? Thanks :)
What time of yr should I cut?
Do flails not introduce more disease though?
Thanks, Megan and CPRE. A really interesting talk and vey well presented. Unfortunately, I have to leave now.
Hydraulic fingerbar cutters are now becoming more available especially on smaller tractors. multi disc cutters are available too. Martin Steer
If I trim alternate years to allow 2nd yr wood flowers/fruit to produce, then will I loose production that year?
Can Oak be coppiced? I’ve never seen it anywhere.
