As members of the National Hedge Laying Society we have skilled people who are able to do hedge laying using the traditional techniques.
Laying hedges is just one of the techniques in managing hedgerows. Other techniques include “Trimming” (cutting with a tractor mounted flail) and “Coppicing” (cutting off at ground level to encourage the hedge to regenerate).
