IS IT OK TO PLANT A TREE?

Planting of trees

Generally trees can be planted anywhere on a property and there is no requirement for trees or hedges to be set back a certain distance from the boundary. However restrictions may exist through other controls such as covenants or planning controls. It is worth considering how high a tree will grow and what it's affect on the surrounding properties bearing in mind the owners liability, see Tree Owners Responsibilities. Most Garden Centers will be able to provide advice how big a tree will be when it reaches maturity.

Things to consider

Trees planted on clay soils close to properties may cause subsidence

Large dense trees which grow fast may cause disputes with neighbours because of shading

Certain trees have attributes that many cause problems, eg. dropping fruit, growing fast and being fragile, summer branch drop, producing unpleasant smells, damaging laws, poisons fruit or leaves etc.

Some trees may require regular maintenance
