Q.I Have A Beech Hedge But Don’t Know If Theres A Way Of Making It Grow Any Faster. If Not How Much Would It Grow In A Year?

Hi, I’m looking for a bit of advice on my beech I have. I have just purchased a property and got about 130 feet of Beech hedge. Im sure it is Fagus sylvatica. It’s been trimmed previously down to about 2 to 3 feet high. I’m wanting it to be about 5 feet +. Is there anything you can advise that I could do to help it grow any faster? If not then how tall do they usually grow per year?
