Description:
Snedding is the process of stripping the side shoots and buds from the length of a branch or shoot, usually of a tree or woody shrub. Most commonly this process is performed during hedge laying.

The verb, "to sned", analogous to today's limbing, was also used by woodcutters in Scotland to refer to the process of removing branches from felled trees. Whether using an axe or a chainsaw the relative difficulty of snedding was a key measure of the difficulty of the job as a whole.

The word comes from the Scandinavian sn├Ąddare, meaning a smooth log via the Old English "snaedan".

Snedding can also describe a form of pruning when only some shoots will be removed or when removing the leafy top from root crops (particularly turnips) is also known as snedding.
