River Hamble CP hedge laying

Event Details

This event finished on 16 January 2019

Further work on the hedge line that we started clearing in November. Many 10 year old liggers to be removed before laying the hedge anew from the young coppice regrowth close to the ground. Stakes and binders to be salvaged from cleared wood to see if we can bind the hedge from its own thinnings. Rod to be task leader.
