THE HEDGE CUTTING SEASON DOES NOT START UNTIL 1ST OF SEPTEMBER.
The HLAI take this opportunity to point out that there have been NO CHANGES to the prescribed dates for cutting hedges and the burning of uplands. There are many rumours to the contrary circulating but they are unfounded and anyone acting on them will be in breach of the law, and also damaging their hedges and the wildlife that depends on them.
