The Tree Council - Close the Gap Restoration and planting project: HEDGE TREE TAGS - TESTERS NEEDED!
The Tree Council are looking to produce some new hedgerow tree marker tags, funded through the Close the Gap. The tags will be available for farmers/landowners to mark young hedgerow trees to allow them to grow into mature trees. Devon has lost so many of the mature hedgerow trees in the landscape over the last few decades and ash die back is going to be another big loss in the coming years.
The tags are made from recycled boat sails and need to be tested out before a full batch is ordered. If anybody would like to help test the tags over the next few weeks, please drop an email with TREE TAGS in the header, to email@example.com and we’ll arrange to get a (free) sample sent to you. We need some feedback on whether they will stand out enough in a hedge for flail operators to spot them. Contact Tess or Ken at the Tree Council: https://treecouncil.org.uk/our-members/close-the-gap/
