The rear of the property on Sandbanks, showing the two trees which Trevor Beale cut back.
A millionaire added up to £100,000 to the value of his luxury holiday home on Sandbanks by butchering two protected trees in his back garden, a court heard.
Trevor Beale had the mature Scots Pines hacked back to increase the natural light on the patio and two balconies of his large house on the exclusive resort in Poole Harbour, it is claimed.
Numerous branches were cut off, leaving the canopies of the 60ft tall trees almost bare.
The two pines were subject to Tree Preservation Orders and Beale should have sought permission from the local authority before carrying out any work.
