Home Publications Tree felling – getting permission

This booklet tells you what you need to know about getting permission to fell any trees for yourself or for someone else. It is for guidance only and is not a legally binding interpretation of the legislation (the Forestry Act 1967 as amended). If you are unsure as to whether you require a licence, speak to your nearest Forestry Commission office for guidance before you start any tree felling.
