Are the oak trees on your land, and do they have any protection (TPO or Coservation Area)?

I missed the bit on the thread title about the length and height. However my other questions still stand.

problem hedge

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 05:43


How long is the hedge, how high is it and what shape is it currently cut in? Does it form a boundary with a road, footpath or a neighbour's garden? If a public road or path, is it encroaching on the width of that way at all - in other words, is it a nuisance to anyone even to the slightest extent? What is the diameter of the trunks at about a foot above the ground? Is the purpose of this hedge to give privacy?

next step of storing tulip/daffs bulbs?

If the green's all gone and the bulbs are dry you can store them anywhere, although not all in a heap, for preference.

Mattocks and big crowbars are good for that sort of job.

Disposal of large garden hedges

Just because it's convenient to you to cut down hedges in spring, it doesn't make it right or legal.

The easiest way to get rid is to hire a skip. You may need two, but if you cut it all into smaller bits and pack it in well, it will help.
