Q.Beech Hedge Cutting

Anonymous added on April 8, 2012 | Answered

I have a beech hedge running along one of my boundaries. On my neighbor’s side, it is only about 0. 5 meters deep. My side needs a severe pruning. When is the best time to do this? I have been told conflicting info.

While your beech hedge is growing, it's best to trim it in winter.
One light cut, just nipping off the ends of the new growth is all it needs.
