What’s involved in hedge removal?
People want their hedges removed for a number of reasons. It could be to make more space in the garden, to increase property boundaries, remove obstructions, make way for fences, driveaways or other plants or because the hedge itself has died or is diseased.
When removing a hedge, we carefully plan and evaluate what’s required. We’ll check that removing the hedge doesn’t compromise infrastructure, such as drains or cables, before beginning the removal process.
We’ll cut branches down to the stump before removing the remains, so there are no obstructions or potential hazards. We’ll also make sure we don’t leave any waste or debris after the job is complete to make life easier.
How much does hedge removal cost?
We can’t give a flat price for our hedge removal service because each individual’s circumstances and requirements are different. However, with just a few details, we can give you a FREE quote.
What’s the best time of year to remove a hedge?
You can remove a hedge any time of the year, however the whole operation is easier when nearby trees and plants don’t have leaves, so Autumn or Winter can be an optimum time to remove a hedge.
Can I remove a hedge myself?
Yes you can, but we always advise contracting a professional tree surgeon to remove a hedge. This is because a tree surgeon will consider other important factors, such as the impact on wider infrastructure and any wildlife. Also, when a hedge is taken down to the stump, the stump can be difficult to remove with the appropriate equipment, such as a digger or grinder.
