What's the amenity value? is it raised or lowered by the intense
maintenance they require? I'd say it's a hedge, at least until the owner
got fed up and let them become a row of trees.
If I was a Tree Officer with a heavy work load I'd say it was a hedge and
leave them to it.

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
then a TPO may be appropriate, and the new regs allow for repetitive
work - although not open-ended.  If in a CA, again if defined as
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
