Hedge Cutting

DEFRA has now extended the ban  on hedge cutting from 1st March until the 31st August to protect nesting birds.

For the safety of road users, permission can be obtained from Natural England to trim roadside hedges and at road junctions within the prohibited period.

Some arable crops are sown during august and hedges can be cut prior to drilling the next crop  but a request has to be made to The Rural Payments Agency and Natural England.

Hedge laying can be continued until march 31st as this is not cutting.

The regulations do not apply to hedges that are not under the control of the farmer.

The full regulations can be downloaded from The Rural Payments Website, RPA.gov.uk
