Felling licence

Subject: Felling licence

Hi all, quick one for Forestry minded bods. Do the felling licence
exemptions differ between Scotland and England as I have just read
somewhere that felling of trees in gardens is exempt from the
requirements of a felling licence. Does the same apply in England? I
suppose there is also the question of what constitutes a garden? Does
this  mean the line of domestic curtilage as defined on the Land
Registry drawing or is there some delineation between garden and areas
of woodland within the property boundary? I had previously supposed that
a felling licence would be required if the volume was over 5 cube as
specified in the regs.

Many thanks
