Hedgerow creation project at Ox Close Wood

A series of four marathon Friday work days saw the completion of the new hedge along the southern and western boundaries of Ox Close Wood.

Funded by Green Leeds, The Trust has completed planting over 3,000 saplings to create this new mixed species hedgerow. It is intended to provide protection from spray drift from the intensively farmed fields that surround the wood and to create a new wildlife corridor and important habitat.
