In England at least (and maybe in other parts of the UK) you need to check if a tree is covered by a Tree Preservation Order before cutting it down even if the tree is on your property.

(Not sure if you can 'own' a tree independently of the land it stands on.)
Before you get to that stage you need to see if he owns it. If he doesnt then he has no right to.

You are basically damaging someone elses property . If you cnat work out whether that is right or wrong, then there is little hope for your future.

Or you are just trolling.

So if a tree isn't covered by a prevention order then it's legal to cut it down ?
You can't cut down a tree covered by a TPO without permission.

Of course, there may be other reasons why you can't cut it down -- like for example the fact that you don't own it/the land that it's on!

I cut down a big tree today using a basic hand saw, it was a tall tree and had quite some width, it really is a good feeling as you finish sawing then hear the tree crackle so loud and then collapse.

There are a lot more trees there that I want to cut down but I want to make sure it's legal first, there was nobody around today as I was cutting this tree down, but when I walked back to my car there was a police car just opposite, I thought I was going to have a panic attack, I had the saw hidden in a bag and luckily the police didn't approach me.
They were chatting with a lorry driver who'd parked there too sleep, not sure what they were chatting about

It wasn't exactly in the woods but along a thin path that spans a few miles long with threes on either side


So can anyone tell me if it's legal or not for me to cut down trees like this or am I an illegal logger ?


Thanks
NO, its illegal to cut down any tree! Unless your using it for fuel or making furniture

If you get caught, don't say we didn't warn you.

Is it your tree? If not no it's trespass and illegal.

See https://www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/infd-6dfky4

Did you scan the tree first with your UPC Scanner?

What so you just went to a forest, cut a tree down, and just left it there?!?! What do you need experience for, are you becoming a lumberjack?
To be a lumberjack he needs to sleep all night and work all day.

He’ll also need to put on women’s clothing, suspenders and a bra.

Then he’ll be a lumberjack, and it’s ok.

If a tree falls in a forest and there's no one around to hear it, does Cleverboy1991's Vectra pass its MOT.

I hope he's left his tattoo to someone for when the tree lands on his head.
