"This was the first time we have used you and would like to thank you for the outstanding work completed by your team this week. The hedge has the best shape ever. Our biggest dread was having to face up to having the 4 trees taken down from the end of the hedge. This work was completed very carefully and we are pleased with the outcome. Good clearing up job as well. Look forward to having you back next autumn. "

Hedge Trimming

As well as large tree work Smart Trees Ltd also carries out shrub and hedge maintenance, ranging from individual shrub pruning to large conifer hedge reduction and trimming. We have a wide range of equipment to aid us in carrying out these tasks as professionally and cost effectively as possible such as mobile scaffolding towers which can save huge costs on other mobile working platforms.

We also use extra long-reach hedge cutters that speed up the job and allow us to carry out work without unnecessary use of dangerous steps and ladders .

Helpful information

A boundary hedge is usually the joint responsibility of both neighbours. Both must agree on major work, including removal, coppicing or laying. In theory, you need your neighbour´s agreement even before trimming the hedge. If the hedge is just inside your neighbours garden, they own it; you only have the right to trim any part that encroaches over your boundary line. Your neighbour should ask for your permission for access to trim the hedge on your property.

Regardless of ownership, no-one can trim or cut a hedge if the action damages active bird´s nests, and hence violates the Wildlife and Countryside Act. If tall hedges or trees put your garden in the shade, you can cut off branches that overhang your boundary. You can also prune back roots that invade your property, even if this is detrimental to the plant. You don´t have the right to cut down vegetation on your neighbours property, or apply weedkiller to destroy the plants.
