Untrimmed Osage Orange Hedge Row
View Full Image
This Osage orange hedgerow in Blue Mound Township, McLean County, has remained untrimmed for many years. Hedging often took the place of fencing around farmers' fields. Early hedge rows were trimmed at armpit height. When Osage orange goes unattended, it grows very high and serves as a giant barrier between fields.
