Dead hedging is making a barrier entirely from natural material, as shown in this drawing from the BTCV. Stakes are driven into the ground at intervals, and longer cut branches are woven between the stakes.
We are planning to collect material that we have previously coppiced from the Centenary Wood (see earlier post) and bring it down to locations where we want to create barriers to protect sensitive areas.
Please come along and help us – you can also collect your FREE copy of the new Nature Journal, if you haven’t already got one. You’ll need to wear suitable footwear. Tools and gloves will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you at 10.00 am at the Shire Way gate.
