Welcome to FWAG South East, the association of farm environment advisers for Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hants, Isle of Wight, Berks, Bucks & Oxon.

FWAG South East is part of the national FWAG Association, the successor to the Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group which provided environmental advice to farmers for over forty years. The advisers in the south east continue the FWAG ethos of integrating sound environmental work into modern and profitable farm businesses through practical, informed and independent advice.

The FWAG Association also hosts the prestigious Silver Lapwing Competition, an annual award for outstanding farmland conservation kindly sponsored by Waitrose.

Would you like to plant some new hedgerows and trees?


The Woodland Trust, supported by FWAG, is offering to cover 80% of the cost of hedgerow and tree plants, stakes and guards as part of an initiative to offer a simple funding arrangement purely for hedgerow and tree planting.

The remaining 20% landowner contribution amounts to £70 per 100 metres with a minimum length of 100 metres. For every 100 metres of hedgerow planted, the Trust would like 25 trees planted; 5 hedgerow trees with 20 others planted elsewhere on the farm.

If you would like further details, advice and/or an application form, please contact your local adviser.

TEST VALLEY DORMOUSE PROJECT

TEST VALLEY DORMOUSE PROJECT

We’re also working with the Woodland Trust and farmers in the northern Test Valley in Hampshire on a project to improve habitat connectivity for the elusive hazel dormouse.  


This tiny mammal is a low-profile and low density occupant of habitats that represent key elements of the traditional lowland farmed landscape: hedgerows, hazel coppice and mixed deciduous woodland.
