    I am hoping to move to a new house in the next 3-4 weeks, The problem is the surveyor has said he recommends getting a tree specialists report, (Cant remember how to spell the word, something like arbocologist)

    There are no signs of damage from the eucalyptus tree but i wondered what type of roots they have and if the roots are known for causing problems. Also are these trees protected or am i ok to have this tree taken down by professionals?

    Thought it easier to ask advice here 1st before i call someone out.

    2nd There is a massife leylandi tree over 30feet tall, Now with some new law i hear about not letting them over 2metres in height. Am i also ok to have the same people dispose of this tree or do i need to get permission.

    Any advice would put my mind at rest.

    Thanks

    Steve

    See this

    Leylandii only have to be cut down if they are more than 2m high AND they are planted in a row, (though any two trees must be in a row I suppose) AND you have been approached by a complainant AND you have refused to do anything about it.

    It's an aboriculturalist you need, and make sure they at least have a lindline number as well as a mobile.

    to see if its protected you will need to contact your local council, they will have the records of it
