The Law of Trees, Forests and Hedges is the only comprehensive work on this complex area of law – an uncoordinated mix of private and public law, common law and statute – as it applies throughout the United Kingdom.  It explains the general law on trees, outlines the law relating to commercial forestry, and discusses the protections for important trees and hedgerows, ancient woodlands and historic landscapes.
Previous editions are often referred to as Mynor’s Law of Trees and Hedges. This new edition recognises other contributors as well as the principal author.
