Planting hedges

HaiesThe pasturelands are an important feature of the Orne landscape. Hedges prevent erosion, contribute to biodiversity and are made up of many different species, giving some incomparably beautiful scenery. With the role it plays in the wood energy sector, the hedgerow is also a key element in the rural economy.

Among its other environmental policies, Orne Council provides financial help for the planting of pastureland hedges. See the "La Haie, patrimoine de L'Orne" guide (“The hedge - natural heritage in the Orne") to discover some of the most beautiful hedgerows in the department and, following the advice included in the guide, create your own hedgerow.
