Yep just as I’d heard, that’s ridiculous

If it was not for the forestry act and the forestry commission putting rules and regulations in place there would be no trees left, a felling licence does not cost only the price of a stamp.

Yep but on the other hand if the yields that low landowners won’t bother planting either it’s not worth the hassle

They will carry on planting and carry on getting felling licences.

 

The 5 cubic mtrs is only the limit if you don't apply for the licence.

So assuming for arguments sake 1 tree = a cube, you can fell 5 trees but only sell 2. What happens to the other 3? Hardly a profitable investment for an average farmer, ok he could get a license then he can’t cut them himself it’s all too much red tape
