Forest Edge

Aims: Introducing biodiversity on the forest edges to help the production forests with the climate changes.
The Forest edge Hedge has several aims:
- Sanitary: increasing the biological fight by hosting auxiliary predatory species, for example.
- Protective: protecting against fires and hurricanes by creating a natural barrier.
- Landscaping: diversifying the landscapes, mainly those of cultivated forests.
- Convenient: creating recognizable physical boundaries.
- Environmental: creating natural habitats and sources of food for plants and animals.

Adult height: The forest edge hedge does not need to be pruned. The plants that form this hedge are free to grow to their own height.

Period of interest: All year.

Planting distances: Every 2 metres, so that each species can fully develop.
