Question: pruning

they pruned a laurel hedge tightening it very tightly, it is almost empty, will it recover? the hedge has big trunks, it's 15 years old !!!

Answer: pruning

Dear Mariella,

often the hedges tend to become very large and take up a lot of space, forcing us to prune vigorously; generally the laurel (it could be prunus lauroceraso, or laurel, or laurus nobilis) tends to be a vigorous plant, which easily recovers from pruning of all kinds.

It is clear that now the plant is in vegetative rest, so you will have to wait for spring to be able to see the new shoots; I believe that over a few weeks, in March-April, the plant should produce a good amount of new branches, which will cover the gaps left by pruning.
