As I have a tree that needs 2 metres lopping off its top, I checked the official info.

Owners of any tree with a trunk diameter of 75mm, (about 2 and half inches), or over (apart from fruit trees), which do not already have a preservation order in a Conservation Area have to give the authority 6 weeks notice for the opportunity that they can inspect the tree and raise, if necessary, a preservation order.

Therefore, the official procedure seems to also apply to overgrown leylandii hedges - they are obviously not fruit trees: they grow rapidly and their trunks widths can be fairly wide.

Does that mean any householder wishing to trim a leyandii-type hedge has to give the council 6 weeks notice?

Surely, fruit trees are not the only exception to this procedure. Does anyone know otherwise?

What is the ruling on Confider trees ?
They could provide a counselling service to Brigg .
