Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A tree felling licence was received from the person named.  When inspected, it was discovered that the application was for a six metre hedgerow and that a tree felling licence was not required.  The applicant has been informed of this by letter.  My Department has also advised the applicant that contact must be made with the National Parks and Wildlife Service before removing the hedgerow to ensure they are in compliance with the Wildlife Acts.
