Filling in the Gaps

 

 

Hethersett Tree Wardens, Colin Ward and Anne Edwards (pictured above), were out and about during National Tree Week, which ran from 26th November to 7th December, planting native hedgerow trees around the parish. 

With permission from local landowners, oaks, limes, rowans and ash trees have been used to fill gaps in some of Hethersett’s ancient hedgerows. 

“Hedgerow trees are a quintessential feature of our landscape and an important haven for wildlife. The trees, together with the hedgerow, represent a range of wildlife habitats. They provide shelter, food and nesting sites for birds, roosts for bats and support rich insect and lichen communities. Unfortunately, there are far too few young trees to replace existing mature hedgerow trees when these reach the end of their lives” said Mr Ward. 

Plants were provided by South Norfolk District Council via its tree warden scheme. Any other Hethersett landowners who would like to get involved with the hedgerow tree campaign should contact Colin Ward on Norwich 810170.
