This is a new and as yet unproven method of laying hedges. It is a "Leylandii Cypress" hedge, blown over in the storms of early July 2011.
This shot shows how tall the hedge was at first, before most of it blew over.

|The hedge came down (not just because of the wind) because of the permanently moist soil.|
If it were my paddock, I would leave the trees there, and let them take their chances to regenerate. Besides, it is a reminder of the storm of July 2011.
