Exposed vertical pipes are particularly hazardous for birds.
Oak woodlands are increasingly in jeopardy from development.
Oak trees can be planted from acorns with great success if proper steps are taken.
Farmers have long understood that planting hedgerows around the edges of their properties can produce a number of benefits to their farming operations. These hedgerows, if consisting of native trees and shrubs can be an important way for farmers to support local bird populations in areas where natural habitat can be scarce.
