There is a large body of law relating to trees and forestry. Disputes may arise between neighbours as to ownership or boundaries, or trees may be hazardous to the public. There are legal issues for statutory undertakers and for commercial forestry. Legal protection may be given to special trees and hedgerows. Such issues may require consideration of various areas of law, such as property, planning or environmental law. This book is the only in-depth, specialised text dealing with all aspects of the law concerning forestry and trees.

The work is divided into four main sections:-

  • an introduction
  • and then sections on the general law;
  • commercial forestry;
  • and protection for special trees and hedgerows.
The only in-depth guide to this area of law which brings together all aspects of law relevant to trees and forestry in one volume
  • Includes sample conditions for use with planning permissions and tree preservation order consents
  • Provides a list of relevant organisations.
