Hedge laying
Hedge laying
Hedge Laying (or steeping) is normally done in the winter when the sap is not rising. These hedges are normally "laid" on a 7-15 year cycle, although the practice fell into decline in recent years. It is debatable whether this is hedge laying or coppicing, since the larger stems have been cut completely.
