When it comes to hedge cutting, we encourage property owners to utilise fully-trained and experienced tree surgeons. While DIY projects will always hold a certain appeal, hedges represent numerous challenges that could cause lasting damage if carried out incorrectly. From the creation of that much-admired professional finish to working in compliance with the law, the team at New View Tree Specialists always achieves outstanding results in a responsible way.
As tree surgeons, we share more than a decade of industry experience in the local area. From Hindhead to Camberley, we have worked extensively with every type of hedge species. Due to the variation of these species, hedge cutting and pruning should never be undertaken with a universal approach. Different hedges require specific techniques for ongoing healthy growth. When applying haphazard or heavy-handed cuts, less experienced hands run the risk of creating unsightly holes or exposed areas of brown foliage.
With accreditations from City & Guilds, NPTC and Lantra, our tree surgeons also excel in ‘cutting to a batter’. Used to create and maintain formal hedges around Farnham, Camberley and the surrounding areas, this specialist process involves trimming with an upward taper without exceeding a width of 60cm. The resulting wider base ensures that all areas of the hedge surface receive the required sunlight for optimal growth.
The tree surgeons at New View Tree Specialists take our legal obligations seriously. As such, we structure our hedge cutting services around the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 as well as the Hedgerows Regulations 1997.
The former helps to protect wild birds by taking every measure possible to ensure active nests in Hindhead, Farnham and the neighbouring areas remain unharmed for the duration of their use. As such, it is an offence to intentionally disturb or damage a wild bird’s nest. Unless we have 100% certainty that a hedge doesn’t contain one of these nests, we refrain from carrying out hedge cutting services between March and August in order to avoid the bird breeding season.
The latter regulations play a vital role in protecting hedges in accordance with their importance, location and length. Hedgerows in rural locations around Hindhead, Camberley, Farnham and beyond still act as boundary markers and fences. Correct preservation of these hedges remains essential to their local communities.
