Pruning overgrown beech hedge.

I inherited an untended 15 year old beech hedge and lopped them to 6 ft . Can I prune the branches which have grown untended back without loosing all of its foliage? Pictures attached. PaulWynne, Boyle, Co Roscommon Posted: 22/04/2017

Let the new growth get established until August and then clip evenly at, or close to, the height you want.
