  • Hedge Trimming and Shaping – To reduce or shape a hedge or conifer to your specifications. We offer Hedge trimming throughout Teesdale and Co. Durham. Many hedges benefit from being trimmed several times a year where as others tend to be manageable with annual cuts. It all really depends on the owners preference and the environment in which they are situated. Privet and laurel ,for instance, generally grow quite fast so often require being trimmed multiple times a year.
    Here is a small album of some recent hedges we have trimmed in the Co. Durham area.

Every job we take on is carried out to a very high standard and we will do everything in our power to preserve the trees health where ever possible.
