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.

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.
