All the components of a wildlife hedge can be chopped back in the winter (or coppiced). This is recommended every 2nd or 3rd year, not every year. This will allow the hedge to realise full potential and provide an abundance of fresh leaf colour and form in early spring flowers, berries etc in summer and autumn leaf colour. It will be a haven for wildlife.
