There are areas of scrub almost everywhere you go in Dorset and it comes in two forms.

  • Hedgerow scrub; hedges are a shrubs (and trees) that are managed and form boundaries between fields.
  • Mixed scrub; naturally generated collection of bushes that are not managed but are developing on their own in conditions that suit them
