It's not readily apparent from that picture, but it's not a linear
feature.  It is a dense shrubbery
covering an area roughly twice as wide as it is long.  Go to
and look at it in an editor such as iD.  There are three trees in it, but
apart from that is is shrubs.
Hedges are linear features (or closed polygonal linear features), not
areas, so it's not a hedge.
Despite the three trees, it's not woodland, either.

Also, most shrubberies are not as dense as that, they permit passage.  So
even if we had hedge
areas, shrubberies wouldn't qualify as they are not impenetrable.
