Building Near Trees? Read This First

Trees can easily be overlooked during the design process, but they can become critical items later on. And don’t think you’re off the hook if you’re not planning to remove any trees to make way for your extension, renovation or new build. Building anywhere near a tree of significance (even if it’s not on your land) can bring with it regulations that might force you to change your design or limit your ability to build at all. It’s best to know where you stand with trees on or near your property early, before the design process gets underway – it will save you from headaches later.
