CPRE Hedgerow Heroes project

Hedgerow planting and restoration: Come and plant with us!

One of the most important aims of the project is to create new hedgerows and enhance/restore older hedgerows that are tired or depleted. 

We have visited and assessed around 30 sites this Spring in the South West part of Shropshire. We will plant around 2km of new hedgerow this coming planting season and restore around .5km of old or struggling hedgerow (restoration will include gapping up - ie filling the gaps with new hedgerow trees - and potentially some hedge-laying and coppicing where appropriate). 

Hedge management advice will be given to all landowners.

Sign up now to help us plant new hedges in Shropshire this winter!

This year, the sites are generally in the South West of the county (Bishops Castle/Clun/Craven Arms).


We are delighted to be working closely with Trees for Shropshire and the Stepping Stones project (National Trust)

 to create new hedgerows in the county this year.

If you would like to help us, please get in touch or sign up here!
