Trees, Hedges and Planning

Trees are an integral feature of the landscape of the National Park and require particular attention when considering a planning application, as well as general tree and hedge management. 

An application for a development with a design that integrates existing trees and hedges will be viewed more favourably than one that does not consider existing trees and hedges at all.

If there are mature trees on your land and you are looking to submit a planning application to the National Park Authority or carry out management activities the following is a list of key documents with information and guidance that may assist you in considering trees and hedges on your land:

​High hedges

  • If you think that a high hedge is detracting from the reasonable enjoyment of your property, home or garden, you may be able to make a complaint, under the terms of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, to resolve the matter. Please see the Pembrokeshire County Council website for more information.
