CPRE's Hedgelife Help Out takes place from 1-31 May

Between 1 and 31 May, Hedgelife Help Out saw thousands of volunteers surveying their local hedgerows. We’re crunching the data now, so check back soon for the results.

About Hedgelife Help Out

Hedgerows are the vital stitching in the patchwork of our countryside. Not only are they beautiful, with shifting seasonal colours, but they also provide homes and corridors for wildlife. And all the while they help tackle the climate crisis by capturing carbon. Hedgelife Help Out involves you checking on a hedgerow local to you (or one you can visit). It will help us get a picture of the state of our hedgerow network and, we hope, make you want to find out more about hedgerows.

Hedgelife Help Out has now finished and we’re collating all of your entries to build a picture of our hedgerows nationwide. Check back soon for the results.

Submissions for Hedgelife Help Out have now closed; thank you to all who took part! We’re going through all the data now so that we can build a nationwide picture of the health of our hedgerows.

Check back soon for the results!
