Title of the project

Hedge planting in the North of France


This planting is being carried out as part of a partnership between the Rieux hunting society, farmers, the Fédération des Chasseurs du Nord and the Association française des arbres et des heaies champêtres (AFAHC) as funder of the project.


400 shrubs were planted in the commune of Rieux-en-Cambrésis along a cultivated plot. Disappeared from agricultural landscapes, this hedge aims to bring biodiversity to agricultural plots by providing refuges and food sources for wildlife.
