Cutting down fruit trees

The Rav Name:

Recently a property i work at was acquired by Jewish owners. There is some concern about cutting any fruit trees down on the property. I have tried to look around online to see if there were any exceptions to the rule of not cutting them down, however the answers seem vary. I wish to respect your laws and was hoping you could help me understand this better. Are there acceptable conditions where we may remove the fruit trees? Thank you
