When is the right time to trim or prune a copper beech hedge.

Berkshire, United Kingdom Gb

Its about 16 ft tall and 25ft wide.



Usual advice is now, and again anytime between May and August when it looks out of shape or untidy, assuming it's not its first year.

we have an ordinary beech hedge and it got its first trim in late april, it will get another in august [unless it goes mad] and then in november any wayward branches are also removed. check for nesting birds though.
