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? 

That's the sort of question that makes lawyers rich, but your local FC
contact may furnish you with a view on whether they would expect a
licence application for a particular site.
