Yes. If a tree is being felled, it can be cut down any time of year. If the stump is being poisoned, the poison will only take effect during the growing season (March - September).
Trees owned or managed by the council will have a pruning regime in place. You can ask your local tree officer about their schedule and when each tree will be cut.
The council have each tree on a pruning regime, typically to be pruned every 3-5 years. They tend not to cut trees due to limited sunlight but rather for the health of the tree or to restrict the roots.
The fine is unlimited if a tree is protected and you cut it down without council permission. It will be based on the nature of the offence, the visual and cultural amenity of the tree, and the CAVAT value of the tree.
