Horrified residents branded the act "environmental vandalism" and demanded the company be properly punished.
Tewkesbury Borough Council told the company it must replace the trees within three months.
The penalty for non-compliance with the notice is a maximum fine of £1,000.
Tewkesbury Borough Council's development control manager Paul Skelton said: "The notice served required the developers to replace the trees by the end of November. "We have had regular discussions with the developers, who have indicated that they intend to replace the trees within the specified timeframe."
