CPRE Hedgerow Heroes project

Hedge creation 2023/24

We did it!

This winter as part of the Hedgerow Heroes project, CPRE Shropshire has planted over 8km of new native mixed-species hedgerow on over 30 sites. Our original target was 6km for this year.

1.8km of this planting was delivered for us by the Shropshire Wildlife Trust in the North of the county and you can find their sites here.

We are only able deliver hedge creation with the help of our brilliant volunteers, so a huge thank you to each and everyone one who has come out to help us plant this winter, in rain, sleet, wind and the occasional ray of sunshine. We really could not do this without you! Thank you also to Izzy at the Shropshire Wildlife Trust for delivering for us in the North of the county.

Check up on the final tally of our Hedge-o-Meter below!
