  3. Cutting high sides of hedges (over 4m)

    I've just spent all day trimming a conifer hedge that has not been touched in 3 years it's 8m high 30m long 5m wide. I have been using my 7m ladder with a step ladder cable tied to the top of it to make a cross and a echo long reach hedge trimmer. Only got half of it done it's been a long hard day. Spending the evening googling access platforms hire prices. Never again will I tackle a hedge of that size from ladders. When doing the top I kept thinking if I could lay ply boards across this it would be so much easier! Has anyone tried this tactic?
