Managing trees in the garden

Want to prune or fell a tree? Find out where you stand with the law, your neighbours and local wildlife.

Trees are an asset in the garden, adding height and structure, movement and wildlife value. But they can also cause problems, especially when Tree Preservation Orders make it difficult to remove or prune them. In this feature we explain what to do if you need to remove or prune a tree, how to find out if there are tree preservation orders in place, and how to find the best local tree surgeons.
