This acclaimed text is the only comprehensive reference source on the law relating to trees, forests and hedges.
This new edition explains the general law on trees, dealing with such matters as ownership, trees and hedges on property boundaries, high hedges, hazardous trees, highway trees, works to trees, and the planting of trees and hedges. It then examines the law relating to commercial forestry, including its financial and environmental aspects, and outlines mechanisms for protecting important trees and hedges.
The new system of tree preservation orders to be brought in by regulations made under the Planning Act 2008 is covered, and the new regime controlling high hedges on boundaries, established by the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, is explained. The author also examines the Plant Health Order 2005, and the issue of restocking notices following unauthorised felling.
