Since 2010, the Fédération des chasseurs de la Somme, with the financial support of the Fédération des chasseurs de Picardie, has been offering “hedge kits” composed of 15 shrubs of 5 different varieties. This operation has so far resulted in the planting of 64 km of country hedges in the Somme. These developments are essential for the many birds and other species by providing a shelter and feeding area. Hedges are also providing other services as water retention, windbreak, reduction of erosion, etc. ,
