Your garden is coming to life. It’s time to get out your utensils and get going.
A big tree bothers you, casting a shadow when you want a little sun ?
Take care, we can’t do what we want !
In Brussels you need a permit to cut down big trees, that is, trees which are more than four metres high and which have a circumference between 40 cm to 1,50m from the ground. It is strictly forbidden to cut down huge trees.
Before starting to cut down a tree, it’s better to go to the urbanistic services of your municipality. There you might find a rule on cutting down trees. It might indicate that your municipality forbids the cutting down of certain trees in certain places, for example, when it concerns a huge tree.
If the tree is sick or dead, you can cut it down without a licence.
You won’t be able to replant to replant a tree within 2m of the adjoining wall of your neighbour.
