Trees and the Law -What About French Trees Regulations?
Trees are a living heritage.
Whether we are attached to a tree sentimentally, or if we intend to pass on the tree’s heritage to future generations, it leads us to want to preserve and protect them.
Trees and the Law with Regards to the Protection of Trees
We offer advice on the legal aspects relating to trees, including the protection from felling or degradation: French P.L.U or urban planning code, planting distances to be adhered to, use, classified wooded spaces (EBC), veteran or classified trees etc.
Additionally, we can offer you advice on the protective measures that need to be taken when building works in the vicinity of your trees are planned.

Outstanding tree or outstanding garden
We can examine your tree and estimate a tree amenity value, whether it is remarkable or classified or not. The financial value estimate of a tree examination is based on different criteria: its essence, its implantation, its state of health, its dimensions and characteristics, its aesthetic value etc.
We can assist you to classify your tree as ‘remarkable’ if it presents the required physical, physiological or ecological criteria or even an unusual age.
We can also assist you to apply for the ‘ outstanding garden ‘ French label by producing a complete landscape analysis.
Trees and the Law in the Light of Judicial Proceedings
Get well prepared before you start potentially long and costly court proceedings!
There are many disputes and litigation from landlords or owners when a tree is on a property boundary and disturbs the adjacent property. These disputes often result in court proceedings, with the intervention of a tree expert in an appellate court. If your decision is to commence legal proceedings, we can advise an experienced tree expert witness to give advice.
