Translocated - how far?   What species make up this hedge?   What
equipment lies at your disposal?   Obviously the time of year should
have a bearing - the dormant season the best.  Is it 'ancient'?  ( What
is the definition of an ancient hedge & has this one got a protection
order served upon it ?)

If not 
has anyone successfuly carried it out? Any tips would be appreciated.>

I helped a client provide a specification/method statement for moving a
Devon hedgebank to provide a visibility splay. The hedge was shifted up
to 2m decreasing to 0.5m.  Shifting a whole bank is one thing - and the
skill of the tractor driver (it takes 2) is crucial.  If you're taking
about a hedge without a bank - that is going to be more dificult.  Devon
hegde banks have the advantage here.

This was two years ago and the hedge looks good with no significant
losses.

Contact me off forum - if you want more info.
