Landowners are reminded by Offaly County Council that the period for Hedge Cutting runs from 1st September to the end of February each year.
There is an onus on landowners to ensure that any trees and hedges on their property:
- Do not obstruct or interfere with the safe use of the public road
- Do not obstruct or interfere with the maintenance of the public road
- Do not pose a hazard to people using the public road.
Hedgerows along the public road that require cutting or trimming back should be cut immediately and all cuttings removed from the roads and verges.
Please note that where JAPANESE KNOTWEED occurs it SHOULD NOT BE CUT. No ground disturbance should take place at these sites at any time of year. Information on how to deal with Japanese Knotweed is available from the Heritage Office. Please report all locations to the Heritage Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 057 93 46839.
