Hedge Cutting at Hatfield Town Council Sites

Jul 10, 2024 | Recent News | 0 comments

As we move further into the summer months and our parks and open spaces see an increase in visitors, some people may be wondering why some of the hedge rows at Town Council sites haven’t yet been trimmed back.

The reason for this is nesting birds. Birds typically breed between the months of March and August every year, so it is best to avoid working on hedges and trees in these months as birds will most likely be nurturing their new hatchlings. This nesting period is when the nest is most important and most used, so in line with our strategy of putting the environment first, we are holding back on hedge cutting.

Of course, if any hedge rows are causing significant obstruction or a risk to passers by, please do let us know so we can resolve the issue as soon as possible.
