Hooper's Rule
Hooper'e Rule is the traditional way to age a Hawthorn hedge. Hooper's rule based on ecological data obtained from hedges of known age suggests that the age of the hedge is equal to the number of woody species counted in a thirty yard distance multiplied by 110 years. The formula also does not work on hedges more than a thousand years old.
