Battled bravely with beautiful inherited laurel hege on both sides of house, each side approx 200 ft long x 15 ft wide x 13 ft high. Need to cut it back really hard – losing many feet on sides and maybe 5 ft on top – radical! When can I do this and can I use a tractor/mechanical hedge cutter. Heresy I know, but one last effort to keep in under control!
A tractor-mounted circular saw would do a better job on big branches, or cut by hand with a bow-saw or chainsaw if necessary.
