With the government setting targets for the UK to be carbon neutral by 2050, there is an ever increasing need to establish land uses which drawdown carbon from the atmosphere and lock it into the soil. One of the most effective means of achieving this is through the creation of woodland.
The creation of woodland and planting of hedgerows play equally important roles in providing more connected and diverse habitats within the landscape.
Hedgerows can also be utilised to improve water quality by acting as natural buffers for watercourses, thereby reducing the amount of runoff from fertilisers, pesticides and sediment.
We are continuing to see high levels of phosphate and nitrate within UK rivers. The establishment of strategically placed woodland and hedges could play a huge role in addressing this.
