I have een given the jo of cutting down a load of very high conifers and putting a fence in its place. The conifers overhang a pulic pavement a lot and are the height of a normal house. It would be easier to fell the conifers on to the pavement so I can load up the van and take away. Is there any laws about obstructing the pavement. The property is a corner house.

Many Thanks

    I'm not sure what the law is but, are you sure your PL insurance covers you for Tree Felling, especially trees of that height?

    • Hi Darren my PL  cover me for Tree Felling. And I am covered for up to 10 metres in height. I checked before I took the job on. But thanks for asking.


      • Can’t help with the trees, but are you typing in a Mac? Because mine’s given up on the letter “b” too ! ( this post from phone ).

  • I'm not 100% on this but I think you may need some kind of permit from the council to close a footpath for safety of pedestrians and maybe the road if road users are at risk?

    I'd be more worried about H&S procedure and public safety than obstruction.

    Sounds like a job for an arb company, trees that tall likely being felled in a public space need specialist knowledge, risk assessment, maybe a climber to dismantle the trees, and equipment to shift the waste quickly and safely.

    • Have had the council come out and they said I can do them. Have got somebody taking away all waste. I just have to take them down in sections. And fell them into the garden. Thanks everybody fir the advice. Oh and forgot about the b in been ooops
