John,
         Had a similar issue in a CA a number of years ago, the limes were 
supposed to be pleached but had become over grown so had to be reduce in 
height and width which required a notification and I think we put in for a 
rolling consent over a period of 10 yrs which was agreed.

It depends upon size and whether topiary disqualifies a tree species from 
being a tree.
I repeat the wisecrack that if two arbs agree, one of them is probably wrong!

Hmmm, not sure I agree Jim. They don't look like 'trees'. They're a formal 
feature. As such, I'm not sure they're what one would 'ordinarily call a 
tree' as in Bullock vs etc.  Just a row of square boxes of foliage. Since 
when did trees look like that?

If defined as trees and they have significant public amenity value

trees, then as notification only requires a letter, then e-mailing one 
a year with the date knocked on is no big deal, although there is 
nothing in theory to prevent a pruning regime notification for, say 5 years.

Thoughts please

A client has a row of pleached limes. Would these qualify for a TPO? 
Does the annual pruning require Conservation Area notification? Or are 
they a 'hedge'?

Cheers

John
