I would of got a tractor and flailed them.


It was to wide for a flail it's only 12 foot high but the width, plus how messy would a flail leave it there reduced by almost halve

depending on the species, dia and timing I love to see the stems bending and weaving.


I agree with you to I like them left natural but the longer they were left the harder to get some control over them

to be honest i think it largely comes down to what the client want and how much they want to spend, i guess you could of kept and lightly reduced the better trees and thinned (felled) the rest but that might of taken longer. if that is there long term hieght constraints then a hedge would probably be the most cost effective managment.

client happy?

my 1 cents worth.
