The Great Big Dorset Hedge (GBDH) is a campaign to facilitate the restoration and extension of hedgerows the length and breadth of Dorset. The project aims to survey and assess the condition of the vast network of Dorset hedgerows using volunteer manpower to determine the need for hedge laying, planting up gaps, leaving of occasional standards or modifying maintenance schedules. The project also aims to create an understanding within the general community of what a healthy hedgerow looks like, the value of hedgerows as a key habitat for wildlife and their importance in providing protection against the effects of climate change.
