    Native trees on farms could be a common sight in the future

    Native trees on farms could be a common sight in the future


    Canterbury University researchers are looking into the benefits of non-crop planting features, such as shelter belts and hedgerows on farms in the region.

    They provide shelter for crops and livestock, but can give native species food, water and nesting sites.

    Conservation biologist Sara Kross says they expect to see more native birds in the farming landscape as hedgerows grow, and more are planted.

    She says the birds could provide farmers many benefits - such as eating pest insects.
