Removing an Almond Tree - Legal?

Postby elscouser » Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:21 pm

We have a lovely mature and quite big almond tree on my land but due to a terrace extension and the fact that it is on the side of the hill I need to remove it - will I have any issues with the council etc if I do this as part of the terrace job (of which ill have full obra mayor permissions) Are almond trees protected? Thanks in advance

Never heard of them being protected. Holm Oaks are supposed to be.

How about keeping it in small form as a feature? They seem to recover from any amount of pruning. You can also graft on peach and/or nectarines to them. One disadvantage of removing is it is probably helping keep the hill there with its roots.

We built our house on a plot of 100 almond trees. Many had to be removed - no problems with planning permission etc.
