Focus on new felling permissions

From 1 April 2019, anyone wishing to fell trees in Scotland will require a felling permission from Scottish Forestry, unless an exemption applies or another form of felling approval such as a felling licence (including a Long-term Forest Plan) already exists.

A permission to fell trees issued under the new legislation will be called a felling permission rather than a felling licence.
