Butchered not pruned

Have you walked along the footpath at Coach Wood in Shireoaks?

The hedgerow has been butchered by so called experts!

It’s an absolute disgrace that someone has been so irresponsible to choose to cut the hedgerow down by half at a time when birds are nesting and trying to rear their young!

It would be lovely to see an article in our local newspaper to remind people that this isn’t the best time of the year to do such a thing. It is not a good time for the wildlife or the hedgerow to carry out this type of extreme pruning at this time of year!
