Any support on how to successfully prevent a neighbour cutting down an old oak tree?
The houses in two streets were built in the late 50's around a long line of oak trees - the trees forming a natural boundary between the gardens of each street.
One street even has the name 'Oak' in it.
One house is being sold and the incoming buyer wants to buy it on the condition he/she can cut down the 60y+ old healthy tree and develop the house and garden.
Neighbours up in arms about it. They want to get a preservation order on the tree.
Are there any helpful hints on what can be written/
