  • By function: Wine production,Fruit tree production, Gardening (urban, private, educational gardening, small scale), Special production forms

Enclosed land in Germany

  • Protected by law: Germany, in the (in some) federal states (M-V: if >50m)
  • (Re)construction is supported and co-financed
  • Plans where, what and how to renew hedges
  • Good awareness by planners
  • Biotopverbund

Hedges are endangered, as for many years, farmers have destroyed them in order to get bigger fields, easily to farm with tractors. Further dangers:

  • Clearing / cutting
  • Too close with machines (plough etc.)
  • Too much fertiliser/ deposit of fertiliser and pestizides
  • Cutting not adapted (wrong cutting)
  • Waste/litter
  • Damages by animals (biting)
