Background information and definitions
Single or scattered trees may be planted within fields to provide roosting and foraging habitat for bats in open agricultural landscapes. However, it will take a considerable amount of time for trees to become established and sufficiently mature. Existing in-field trees should therefore be retained where possible. See ‘Retain existing in-field trees’.
For studies that may carry out this intervention alongside other interventions to benefit bats on farmland, see ‘Pay farmers to cover the costs of conservation measures (e.g. agri-environment schemes)’. For other interventions that involve planting trees on agricultural land, see ‘Create tree plantations on agricultural land’ and ‘Retain or plant native trees and shrubs amongst crops (agroforestry)’.
