What Is A Tree Preservation Order?

A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is a legal tool used by local planning authorities to protect specific trees, groups of trees, or woodlands. 

TPOs are put in place to prevent deliberate damage, destruction, or improper pruning of trees that are considered valuable for their aesthetic, historical, or environmental contributions. 

These orders make it an offense to cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage, or wilfully destroy a tree without the authority’s permission.

What Does Our TPO Service Involve?

Our TPO service includes the following:

  1. Assessment and Advice: Evaluating the status of trees on a client’s property and advising on whether they are subject to a TPO. This involves understanding local regulations and identifying trees of significance.

  2. Application for Proposed Works: If a tree under a TPO requires work such as pruning or removal (due to disease, safety, or other valid reasons), your service helps by preparing and submitting the necessary application to the local planning authority. This includes providing detailed information about the proposed work and its justification.

  3. Liaison with Authorities: Acting as a liaison between the client and the local planning authority, facilitating communication and ensuring all legal requirements are met.

  4. Compliance with Regulations: Ensuring that any tree work performed is in full compliance with the TPO and local planning guidelines. This is crucial to avoid legal penalties and ensure responsible tree management.

  5. Expertise in Preservation: Offering expertise in tree care and preservation, ensuring that any proposed work under a TPO is done in a way that maintains or enhances the tree’s health and value.
