 Parshas Hashavua

לא תשחית את עצה- כי ממנו תאכל
ואתו לא תכרת  דברים כ: י"ט

The ט"ז (Y.D.116:6) writes,
שאסרו חז"ל מפני הסכנה שלא לקוץ"
אילן העושה פירות"
"Chazal forbade because of סכנה
 to cut down fruit trees" 
Isn't it the Torah who forbade 
cutting down fruit trees?

Perhaps, if we change the  גירסא from שאסרו חז"ל מפני הסכנה
שאמרו חז"ל שלא לקוץ אילן מפני הסכנה , would solve the קושיא 
on the ט"ז.
The Torah forbade us to cut off the fruit tree.
Chazal said* that it is a סכנה* to cut off the fruit tree.

*As far as I know, this is the only Mitzvah in the Torah
where Chazal teach us that it is dangerous to be עובר the עבירה

** Most Poskim including the ט"ז allow cutting off the tree
when the benefit is greater than the tree. They are not
concerned in such cases for סכנה
