In my hometown officials started to cut down many trees because these trees apparenty are inhabited by the Capricorn Beetle: Cerambix Cerdo. I would like to know if local governments are allowed to cut trees and exterminta insects at willl, of are they bound by EU Regulation ( p.e. Natura 2000 ).
Personally, I think its a waste of nature to cut down soo many trees in order to exterminate these beetles.
Thank you for your answer,
