Can I chop trees down in my yard?

All of them if I want right? They attract bugs especially bees. I don't want bees. Don't tell me people will get offended by my chopping them down or the city won't allow it because that is rubbish

    It depends on where in the world you live, and the local laws there.

    In the United States, for the most part, you can cut down trees on your own property if you wish. Exceptions would include city-owned trees (i.e. in the road right-of-way), if you have a homeowner's association, or if there is a conservation easement on your property. 

    Best bet, check with your town hall.

    Since you're posting anonymously, I think it's safe to assume you don't have a yard (a room in your mom's basement maybe,...).

    Depends on the law where you live. In some parts of the UK there are Tree Preservation Orders. Check with your local authority/council, etc.

    Bees are not bugs, they are workers which do many useful jobs for the environment, and thus for all of us.

    That depends on local ordinance. The last town I lived in regulated the removal of any tree of 10" or more DBH. Contact the city manager or the code enforcement office.
