So first things first why was a felling licence not applied for? It is a
fairly straight forward process, though admitedly the new online system
takes some getting used to.
What sort of tonnage was expected  from the felling and what have the FC
measured and calculated?
How big an area was felled during the operation?
5m3 can be felled in any one calender quarter (1st January to March 31st
and so on) though no more than 2m3 can be sold.

The restock conditions from the illegal fell will be based on area felled.
3mx3m is the usual stocking, so 1111 stems per ha, though could be
increased?
Species would normally be similar to what was expected to be found on site.
 I would expect that the FC will expect all newly wanted trees to be
protected by at least 1.2m shelters and be looked after for at least 10
years with random inspections carried out at various intervals throughout
this time.

Hope this helps?

Thanks Jim, I will.
Just that the person involved wanted me to do some digging first.
Cheers

 The restocking is more likely to be on an area basis at the now standard
3m centres, but technically it is numerical.
Discuss it with the private woodlands officer - they are human!

Dear collective,

I've been asked to help someone who's felled 46 Oaks (ranging from sapling
to early mature) in a woodland.
Rather than prosecute, the Forestry Commission are going to issue a
re-stocking notice.
I've never dealt with one of these before and have a few questions:

Is there a formula for calculating how many trees need to be re-planted,
or is it usually on a tree-for-tree basis?
What size replacement trees usually need to be planted?

Do they need to go in the same place, or can they be scattered around the
woodland?
Do the replacement tree species have to be the same as felled, or can
other natives be planted?

Any help greatly appreciated,

Cheers

Trevor
