Aldwick is famed for its trees which provide shade in summer and protection in winter. Many of our trees are protected by Tree Protection Orders and if this is the case you will need to apply for planning permission before pruning these trees. Felling of a protected tree is never permitted without the relevant planing permission. Trees are an important amenity feature of our environment and provide homes to many birds and insects. So go out and hug a tree today! To locate specific tree preservation orders click on the link: http://www1.arun.gov.uk/webapps/wml/ Click: Choose map layers, then click Tree Preservation Orders.
