CPRE Hedgerow Heroes project

Hedge planting dates 2022/23

We are aiming to plant 3km of new hedgerow in Shropshire this winter (2022/23).


We are currently finding and assessing suitable hedge sites and will put up dates and sites for planting later this autumn.

If you are a Shropshire farmer or smallholder interested in planting native hedgerow on your land please contact us for more information. The hedge whips and protection are provided free of charge and the planting is done by volunteers under the direction of Trees for Shropshire. There are some criteria to satisfy which we can go through with you. We look forward to hearing from you!

If you would like to sign up to help us plant this winter, please do so on the form below and we will make contact with you nearer the time.
