TF0627 : Decayed Hedge

taken 4 years ago, near to Kirkby Underwood, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Decayed Hedge
Decayed Hedge
The southern edge of the woodland, known in this spot as Grange Wood rather than Temple Wood, is delineated by a former laid hedge that has been allowed to grow naturally.

Known sometimes as a 'decayed hedge' these are easily spotted by the linear arrangment of the trunks and the clear space either side. At the base the tree boles are thickened and often show traces of the former hedge-laying. In this instance the hedgerow is not raised on a bank, but some decayed hedges are. The plants are perfectly helathy, of course, there is no decay in the sense of destruction or rot.
