Hazel hedge laying. Certain areas of the country have distinctive styles of hedge laying, whereby hedgerow ‘pleachers’ (main stems/trunks) are cut ¾ of the way across near the base, and laid over at a specified angle. Hazel stakes and ‘plashings’ (thin woven hazel lengths) are used to keep the hedgerow secure.
