There is a dangerous tree on a slice of unregistered land at the back of my house. can I legally have it removed. It does not have a TPO on it. The land is 15 wide, and in the early 1940's was used by a farmer to move between his fields (so we have been told). The land lies between the back of my house and the neighbouring houses and is now effectively hemmed in where the older properties have extended their gardens back to my boundary.
Unfortunately, no. The builders were unable to find a name and so left the tree as it is. All we have heard is that it was a tract of land retained so whoever the farmer was could move his tractor between his field. This was back in the 1940's. The area in now about 12 foot square because of the established houses extending their gardens. The tree is question has been seen by a tree surgeon who recommends felling.
