It is an offence to damage and destroy any nest of a wild bird when undertaking work on hedges under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

With bird nesting typically between the months of March and August, our team at EOS will thoroughly and carefully check hedges for any signs of nesting/nests and will not undertake work if nests are found.

Our team know the best time to prune your hedges, and when to cut them back ensuring that they promote future growth. Hedges need to be maintained and kept under control, especially where access is needing for the general public.
