CEDAR HEDGE TRIMMING, A UNIQUE EXPERTISE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ANNUAL MAINTENANCE ?
We recommend that you trim your cedar hedges at least once a season.

ENSURE THE AESTHETICS OF YOUR YARD WITH A WELL-MAINTAINED HEDGE

Annual pruning will give your cedar hedge a neat, symmetrical shape. In other words, a well-maintained plant barrier will give your landscape a more harmonious appearance than if left to its own devices.

STIMULATES GROWTH AND INCREASES FOLIAGE DENSITY

A cedar hedge works like this: the more you prune it, the thicker and fuller it grows. Annual pruning will ensure a dense, full cedar hedge over the long term. A neglected hedge, on the other hand, will bald out and show holes after a few years without maintenance.

CONTROLS THE DESIRED HEIGHT AND WIDTH

It's important to know that a cedar hedge can reach impressive proportions if left to its own devices. An untended hedge can grow up to 20 meters high and 5 meters wide. So it's important to carry out annual pruning in order to keep it in proportion to the space available on your property.

AVOIDS POTENTIAL SNOW ACCUMULATION DURING WINTER

The weight of accumulated snow on your hedge can be one of the main causes of hedge damage. Annual pruning will reduce the risk of snow accumulation, as it will tend to slide to the ground. What's more, annual maintenance will prevent your cedars from having long shoots that are likely to bend and break under their own weight.

WHY
IS PURC├łDRES' EXPERTISE ESSENTIAL FOR TRIMMING YOUR CEDAR HEDGES?

A hedge trimmed in the shape of a trapezium helps catch the sun's rays. It's important to know that, conversely, a hedge that's wide at the top and thinner at the bottom will tend to lose its foliage density. Our specialists will be able to shape your cedars to optimize the light penetration essential to their well-being.

When proceeding with a formative or maintenance pruning, it's important to prune new growth only. If, on the other hand, you prune too severely and cut back mature branches, the cedar will no longer produce new growth.

Doing business with us means you won't have to worry about cleaning up after us. In fact, we're committed to cleaning up any residue left after the work we've done. What's more, the cedar trimmings will be recycled for essential oil production.

The cuttings we recover are sent to a distillery with which we are associated. A process is then set in motion to produce cedar essential oil. This oil can be consumed as is, or by using only a specific molecule found in the oil. The oil is then extracted and exported to Europe and elsewhere in the world for use in a variety of health-related applications.

You'll have peace of mind during the work. In the event of damage on site, our company has liability insurance that guarantees compensation if necessary.

HEDGE TRIMMING

WHAT ARE THE 3 TYPES OF HEDGE TRIMMING?
Whatever the size, our specialists will meet your needs
FORMATIVE  PRUNING

Formative pruning is essential in the first few years after planting a cedar hedge. This involves pruning new growth on the sides of the hedge to stimulate tree growth. This will give the hedge a uniform width and encourage upward expansion. Once the hedge has reached the desired height, pruning the top regrowth will signi´Čücantly begin maintenance pruning.

MAINTENANCE PRUNING

Maintenance pruning takes place when the cedar hedge has reached the desired size. Maintenance pruning involves trimming the sides and top of the hedge in order to maintain control over it. This type of pruning ensures that the tree doesn't grow out of proportion. Indeed, a hedge will tend to grow one foot in width and height each year. Annual maintenance pruning also enables the owner to minimize long-term maintenance costs.

SEVERE PRUNING

When a cedar hedge loses control of its proportions, it is normally pruned back. This involves trimming the hedge back several feet to the desired height. Since this type of pruning is more drastic than maintenance pruning, certain criteria must be respected to avoid shocking the tree. Following the work, the top of the hedge will normally be devoid of foliage and take a few years to regrow. It's also important to note that the side of the tree cannot be trimmed to reduce its width, as this type of conifer is unable to regenerate from "old wood".
