Great Tre Rhew farm is a traditional Monmouthshire farm overlooking the 'holy mountain' Skirrid Fawr. As well as running the farm, a 16th century cider house and campsite, the owners Kate and Jim have been planting extensive Hedgerows and Shelterbelts, totalling over 1.1km of new habitat corridor and new shelter for livestock.

Great Tre Rhew's first new shelterbelt was planted in Autumn 2022 with faith leaders from around the UK. Teams of volunteers supported planting hedgerows which could sequester over 60etCO2 over the next 5years, as well as providing significant flood mitigation and water quality benefits.

In their second season, the winter of 2023/24, Kate and Jim have planted a further 500m of new and restored Hedgerow. These critical boundaries provide not just carbon benefits; they are a key feature in restoring nature in our landscape whilst also providing important benefits to livestock and production on the farm. 

We planted with multiple teams, including the management team of our sponsors Neptune. We also got to film some of our work with a team from the Aviva 'Save Our Wild Isles' community fund.
