      Doubt if it will change then
      Two reasons, I've heard of in the past 1) The tree is on somebody else's property. 2) It has a TPO on it In both cases it was related to property development, or the trees were blocking a view.

        Oh dear yes I suppose that would be a reason @NigelJ and @Zigs , but if it’s illegal then that would be spotted straight away if he did either of those then I would have thought and he would be in trouble...

          Sadly not necessarily, if a tree dies slowly then it may just have died naturally, stress, honey fungus or other disease. Many people/councils would not investigate.
          For property developers the additional value added to the land significantly exceeds the typical fine.
