Richard Green Ecology undertook some conservation hedge-laying as part of the mitigation for a Natural England dormouse licence. The traditional rejuvenation method of hedge-laying reduces gaps and stimulates growth from the base of hedgerows. Wildlife, including dormice, benefit from dense hedges with few gaps. In addition to the hedge-laying, gaps in the hedge and some of the surrounding land was planted with a native species-rich tree and shrub mix. Dormouse boxes erected nearby in the summer of 2017 are already being used.
