Hedgerow


Hedgerows are thought to have originated some 6,000 years ago. In Scotland, hedges planted in the 18th century are now the tallest and longest on earth -- 98 feet high and a third of a mile long. Amazing. In the U.S., some communities are opposed to tall hedges. A woman in Palo Alto, Calif., was arrested because her xylosma hedge exceeded 2 feet. Ridiculous. With laws like that America will never be a nation of great hedgerows.
