Can I Cut Down A Pine Tree On Our Land?

Posted in: Flora And Fauna
Author: Myra Cecilia Azzopardi
Tags: , ,

Most pines are protected and permission should be sought from your town hall if on urban land and if in the country, from the Guardia Civil (Seprona). Protected species normally cannot be cut down and only pruned with permission. There are exceptions to this case and if there is reasonable reasons, you may be able to do so replacing each tree depending if it is indigenous or not.

A list of protected Flora and Fauna can be obtained from the department of medio ambiente at town halls. Trees that are a hazard or causing damage, again talk with your town hall or Seprona. The fine for each tree cut down can be between 1500 and 3000 euros.
