PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Law of Trees, Forests and Hedges is the only comprehensive work on this complex area of law – an uncoordinated mix of private and public law, common law and statute - as it applies throughout the United Kingdom.  It explains the general law on trees, outlines the law relating to commercial forestry, and discusses the protections for important trees and hedgerows, ancient woodlands and historic landscapes.
  • Written in a clear style, accessible both to lawyers and non-lawyers
  • Provides sample conditions for use with planning permissions and tree preservation orders respectively
  • Contains a table of penalties for criminal offences
  • This new edition is fully updated to deal with all relevant developments in legislation, case law and policy
  • There have been over 75 relevant new court cases, including decisions on encroaching tree roots, responsibility for the safety of trees, and the controversial programme of felling street trees in Sheffield
  • The law on the protection of trees in England has been greatly simplified by the 2012 Regulations, and new online guidance; and there have been judicial decisions involving unauthorised works to protected trees, and as to the meaning of “tree”
  • The legislation on trees in churchyards has evolved
  • The administration of forestry has changed significantly, with the setting up of the Natural Resources Body for Wales (NRW) and Scottish Forestry
