As agricultural contractors, we are often asked a range of questions about hedges and other countryside matters, particularly with regard to the stewardship scheme.
The Countryside Stewardship Scheme
provides incentives for land managers to look after their environment. It is open to all eligible farmers, woodland owners, foresters and other land managers.
Also, the Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group
have published a helpful guide to hedge cutting that answer many of the questions that are commonly asked.
