Determined volunteers converged on North Town Moor on Saturday - determined to undo the harm caused by selfish flytippers.
Make Space for Life is a volunteer group of like-minded enthusiasts who get together every first Saturday of the month at the Maidenhead beauty spot to carry out conservation work.
The site is a small remnant of the formerly extensive common land around Maidenhead that was lost to Victorian building. It is now an area of grassland with hedges and scrub, a small pond and a stream.
The Woodlands Trust has donated plants and now the volunteers hope to extend the hedgerow. But first there was work to be done on Saturday.
Nearby resident Jonathan Howe who started Make Space for Life - now in its fourth year - said: "We had to clear out brambles and rubbish left by flytippers.
"But Saturday, March 9, is the day when we will do the planting and we want as many volunteers as possible.
"Any age will do, we had a toddler helping us when we were clearing the rubbish. Just turn up from 10am."
The site is reached from Ray Mill Road West.
