You want to cut down a tree or prune bushes on your property?
Authorised users or owners of land must observe the following when felling trees or pruning trees or bushes
In the period from 01.03. to 30.09. of each year the so-called "summer felling ban" applies. Trees, bushes and other woods may not be cut, felled or cleared. A shape and maintenance cut (e.g. of a garden hedge) is permissible.
Important note: In Bremen and Bremerhaven a tree protection regulation applies. For all planned measures on protected trees, an application must be submitted to the nature conservation authorities.
