We were asked to give an old conifer hedge which was very overgrown with bramble and ivy a good trim and clear out. The brambles and ivy were completely taking over the hedge and growing up into the trees, to a height of around 25 feet.

The hedge ideally needed to be removed and replanted, this was discussed and is a project planned for the future. At this present time the hedge was doing still providing a reasonable stock barrier so fencing was not needed.

Now the ivy and bramble has been stripped from the trees they will be far healthier and produce good new growth.

An example of the damage that the ivy was causing to the trees can be seen in photo 3.
