Council Orders Two 70ft Trees

Residents in Bristol have expressed their concern after the local council announced two cypress trees measuring 20 metres tall are to be felled following a complaint that they blocked light to a nearby property. Bristol City Council classed the pair of mature trees as a “nuisance” and declared they should be cut down. Council officers said the Lawson cypress trees fell foul of a section of the Anti Social Behaviour Act which states that two or more evergreen or semi-evergreen trees or shrubs in a line that extend more than two metres in height and act as a barrier to light or access should be classed as a “high hedge”.
