Conifer Reducing / Trimming by Professional Tree Surgeons in Kent
At "A Cut Above" we reduce conifers to the highest possible standard. When conifers are reduced they have to be cut flat on top because of the way they grow (they are not suitable for reshaping like broad leaves). With a regular maintenance programme conifers can provide beautiful borders/hedges. Badly pruned conifers will not grow back well and can become an eye sore.
Leyland Cypress Hedge
We have maintained this Leyland Cypress hedge for approx 15 years. Originally it was twice as tall and had not been maintained.A strict yearly trimming programme has taken the Leyland to it's full potential.
We always aim for a crisp edge when reducing conifers
This conifer hedge had not been maintained for some time
First we reduce the height to a manageable level
Then we trim the sides. Trimming this hedge in the future on a regular basis will lead to thicker foliage.
