Are you allowed to plant trees anywhere?
Also to know is, can you just plant trees anywhere?
Planting trees to the north and northwest of your house can provide a windbreak, while planting them to the west can help provide shade, according to the Arbor Day Foundation. However, because private property is a thing under capitalism for now, you can't just plant trees anywhere you feel like.
Likewise, do I need permission to plant trees? You do not need permission to plant trees. If you are seeking grant aid to plant, conditions may apply such as providing public access, planting only native species on ancient woodland sites, and so on.
Similarly, you may ask, is it legal to plant trees on public property?
Street & Boulevard Trees on public property. All trees on City property are protected under City by-law and are not to be trimmed, removed or harmed by the public. Likewise, trees cannot be planted on City property unless their location and species has been approved by the Forestry Group.
Can I plant trees on my land?
Trees should not be planted on land of high ecological value. If so you will need to contact the Environment Agency prior to planting.
