Restoration ecology and biological pest control
Dead hedges or wind-rows, as they are known in the coppice trade, are useful keeping the compartments of the coppice tidy, keeping the public from certain areas, being an excellent habitat and corridor for wildlife habitat conservation and restoration ecology, as they offer shelter for small animals, especially birds. This can be part of a beneficial "biological pest agents" habitat in biological pest control programs for natural landscapes and organic gardening.
