Hedge removal/replant and thinning

Had a nice job earlier on this week, and lovely weather to go with it.

First up a leylandi hedge to come out

As well as the stumps

To be replanted with a nice mixed native hedge of hazel, hawthorne, yew and holly

Then there was a small plantation/grove of trees to be thinned out 

We chipped the brash and logged the larger bits

Removing just under half the trees has really opened this area up and should allow the remaining trees to now thrive and take on a much nicer form. We also removed the sumps from here to make mowing the grass much easier
