Hedge Reduction

Hedge Reduction in Moray and Aberdeenshire

Hedge Reduction Services

Hedge reduction services can greatly impact health and character. Pruning and hedge trimming carried out correctly can prevent and manage dieback or dead patches. Encouraging density of growth and slow the creeping in size. Realistically most informal hedges are trimmed once a year. However this is often not sufficient to fully maintain hedges sizes. To keep them at a standstill a formal hedge can be trimmed 2 or even 3 times a year. Yet this is not always possible or financially practical, even once a year is not always managed. Which can lead to them getting out of control and in need of removal. Like all hedge and tree removal, this can be time consuming and more costly than annual maintenance.

Some species can be heavily reduced back to desired sizes and will recover, others with the same treatment will be permanently damaged and never look like a hedge again. Having a full working knowledge of the species you are dealing with can have a huge impact on how you manage your hedges. Epic Tree Care our experienced tree surgeons in Aberdeenshire and Moray can help with determining when a hedge is salvageable. Or if it’s a lost cause and therefore hedge removal is necessary.

Significant reductions are limited by bird nesting season. Due to the density of growth and excellent cover of hedge, it’s prime nesting space. Meaning we usually arrange to complete these works out with this time. If necessary and the hedge cannot wait, we would ensure a full nest inspection is carried out. Before, and during removal to ensure no nesting birds are disturbed by these hedge reduction activities.

Any hedge pruning work has seasons which suit your hedges species better than others. So this will also be considered by our tree surgeons in Moray and Aberdeenshire when any arrangements are made.

Carefully assessed the work to be done and promptly quoted. Agreed dates for the work to be done and came when they said. Carried out the work exactly as agreed. Team was organised and hard working. Tidied up well once the work was completed. I was particularly impressed with the stump removal and the care taken to make sure I was happy with the finished shape of the trimmed trees. Cost seemed high until I saw how many workers were in the team, what work was actually involved, how much wood had to be disposed of and the amount of equipment involved. I was completely satisfied with the work done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
