I am looking for someone to cut a very high hedge, about 17 feet high.

I have seen tractors with an arm which has a cutter on it, and this seems to be the best way. There is no way I would reach the top with normal cutters.

I have read the details on this page, relating to legal times for cutting hedges, but our hedge is part of our garden (cultivated) and not wild, so I think we are ok to cut during the summer:

Does anyone have a recommendation or a name I could contact to do this work?

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't really matter whether your hedge is wild or not as far as birds go ! If there are nests in your hedge, this is the worst possible time to be going near it......could you possibly wait before you cut it ?

yes the hedge is evergreen. I can hold off a few more weeks, but it is obstructing the line of sight when cars leave our house.

Thanks.
