Trees: Bat Protection and Licences

Careful consideration needs to be given if works are planned to trees that show evidence of bat habitation. As bats are a protected species by law, it is likely you will need to contact Natural England for guidance.

Extensive information is available using the links below which includes, most importantly, what you must not do:

Environmental Management:

Bat Protection, Surveys and Licences

Natural England:

Bats, Birds and Trees

Bat Conservation Trust:

Bat roosts

Furthermore, we would also need to know about any works to trees if they are protected or in a conservation area.
