Purpose: This technical note is a product of the Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) work unit titled “Improved Methods for Ecosystem-Based Habitat Management at Corps Projects.” The objective of the work unit is to provide technology on managing wildlife species and their habitats using ecosystem-based strategies. The emphasis is on methods that improve natural resources for a variety of species rather than single species. This note provides an overview of the characteristics of hedgerows and fencerows that allow them to function as wildlife habitat. It describes structural design, establishment, and management, as well as possible negative impacts caused by their use. Emphasis is placed on using native plant species rather than nonnative species to provide wildlife benefits on Corps lands.
