41 yards hawthorn, plum, maple, hazel, South of England hedge, Wendover

View before laying,              thin tall and straggly .... .... and afterwards              with retained yew and maple.
Initial view showing just how sparse the hedge is. Same view laid

Tree retained in hedge to right of conifer is a              relatively scarce purging buckthorn, rhamnus cathartica

As a hedgelayer, one has the responsibility to decide which trees to leave to grow on to become standard trees.
Here, I have kept the tree in the hedge to the right of conifer as it is a relatively scarce purging buckthorn, rhamnus cathartica
