Hedge maintenance

The maintenance of Council owned hedges takes place between July and August each year. However, the cutting of rural hedges occurs during the winter months from October to February.

Please note: Vegetation on private land, which is overgrown and is impeding visibility for traffic or causing an obstruction to pedestrians on pavements, must be reported to Essex County Council who are responsible for highways maintenance.

For information on high hedges on private land please go to the High Hedges web page.

To contact the tree officer please telephone 01277 312500 and select option 2.
