We were in Kings Newton, Derbyshire today for another Beech hedge reduction. Kings Newton is a charming little village situated in south Derbyshire. It was a beautiful foggy morning to be working outside and once again we opted not for the chainsaw or trimmers, but to use our Japanese Okatsune shears and secateurs to maintain a crisp cut finish to the hedge. Always feels therapeutic when using traditional methods and it naturally slows down the process which allows for a proper job to be done.
Tree Species – Beech (Fagus sylvatica)
