My privet hedge that stands 8ft high is dying off between our house and the next door neighbours it is dying off from one end loosing a couple of plants per year, noticeable in springtime , the rest of the hedge is healthy. every year for the past ten years this has happened. Is my hedge being doctored? The part of the hedge that is dying along the line faces a six ft wooden fence. There is a red beech about twenty ft away, the hedge is about 40 years old and the rest of it is healthy and it does not get easier to cut.
