Can you take logs from a park?

Question

Am I allowed to collect logs from the local park if they are lying around? Is there a law against it?

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Robin, Ealing
Qualification: Park ranger
Answer: No. Logs lying around in a park have been cut down from rotting or dying trees and are stacked for conservation reasons to attract dung beetles. If they are left lying around, it’s because someone has already taken it from where it was. You would need to get permission from the council or Park Rangers to be able to take any logs from a park.
