Hedge Cutting – When Can it be Done?

Within the last couple of years under European legislation the hedge cutting ban time has been extended by 1  month. It is now illegal (in most circumstances) to cut hedges between 1st  March and the 31st August.

The time frame has been extended to protect some species of birds, however there are omitting circumstances that allows hedges to still be cut between March and September. The hedgerow may be cut if it is posing a hazard to pedestrians or road users by over hanging a path or road, if parts of the hedge are dead or if it has been planted within the last six months of the year.

For more information on hedgerow management see these hedgelink guidelines.
We offer hedge cutting signs in a few different formats including metal signs, roll up packages and folding plastic Q-signs.
