A felling licence applies to the land, regardless of its owner. The permission and conditions of the licence remain in force after the land is sold.

If you sell land covered by a felling licence then please email fellinglicence@naturalresourceswales.gov.uk to let us know and tell us who the new owner is.

You should also tell the new owner about the licence and any conditions that apply, whether you have carried out the felling or not.

If you sell the land after felling but before restocking occurs then you should inform the prospective purchaser of this obligation. We will still require restocking to be carried out after felling, including any restocking that was agreed through a felling permission provided through a grant scheme.
