There is no evidence that Glocosamine helps with knee pain, but I know that if I don't take it regularly I am in agony. So Mr Clark unless you have tried acupuncture and find it wanting I would discount your views.

There are more things in Heaven and Earth...............

Neighbours

Be careful about a Preservation Order. If you are sure this is your 'forever house' OK fine. But if you want to move some people may be put off by having trees they can do nothing with without hassle.

Your neighbour cannot dictate to you if the trees are on your property, whether they like it or not.

You can also eat them. Good flavour, but their nickname is Fartychokes!

Hedges

My goodness, I would not suggest it with a conifer hedge. First step would be to find out what it consists of. Unfortunately posters rarely give us enough information.

Rural, town, suburban? Conifer, deciduous? Varieties? Height? Berried? Slow-growing? Etc, etc.

The hedges in the farmers' environmental schemes in Wales are cut back to ground level, and they all spring up again. Virtual coppicing in effect. When they reach a suitable height they can be cut and laid if that's what you want or otherwise kept in check.

Perhaps our lot don't speak welsh! But you can set your watch by them as they fly over to their roost.

Dove, I am frequently over-flown by pretty massive flocks of starlings, and they take off and fly silently! But my goodness they chatter noisily in the trees.

You mention hay; buttercup is also poisonous and thistle is not nice in hay.

Thistle & Ragwort control in wildflower meadow

As Ragwort is a biennial you will have to do it two year's running, but pulling it up really is the best method of getting rid of it.

Do it a bit at a time and burn it. It will continue to mature to seeding so put it in black bags until you burn it.
