Cutting and maintenance
If you have land registered as agricultural land and want to remove a tree or scrub from it, then the trees must be felled in accordance with Cabinet Regulation No. 309 of 2 May 2012, Regulations on the felling of trees outside the forest. A permit for felling from the State Forest Service regarding such overgrown areas is not necessary. There is also no need for authorisation or harmonisation to cut trees with a strain average of less than 20 centimetres in the growing agricultural land, as well as for felling fruit trees and trees which pose a direct threat to human health and life if photofixation has been carried out before.
