Hedge Cutting

Hedge cutting is our bread and butter and by far and away the thing  that people enquire about most often. Where as a tree can take years before it needs any kind of work on it, if it ever does at all, hedges are a different beast. They generally require at the very least one cut a year, and many are very tricky to access. Specialist tools are as always a must, and can make light work of the most daunting of jobs. Often what may be an impossible undertaking for the hedge owner, may only take a matter of a few hours or even less for trained and experienced professionals with the right equipment.

There are various reasons that a hedge cutting job miight be a bit tricky and here are a few;

A hedge or part of a hedge may be difficult to access

A hedge may be of a species that is sensitive to over cutting

Thick hedges may require specialist equipment such as chainsaws to cut through.

Some hedges may be especially tall and so difficult to cut

Some hedges, particularly those made up of native British species such as hawthorn, blackthorn etc, may be better suited to "laying" which is a traditional technique which encourages thick healthy hedges and is better for encouraging native wildlife habitats for creatures such as hedgehogs.
