Advice on Protected Trees, Tree Preservation Order – TPOs
A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is made to protect an individual tree or population of trees which are deemed to benefit a local area. They are put in place by local planning authorities, and once in place, it becomes a criminal act to cut down or damage the tree or trees in question.
I can provide you with advice and recommendations relating to TPOs. If you want to know whether a tree or population of trees in your area is protected by a TPO, I can carry out the necessary research for you. I can also help with a TPO application if you are concerned about the welfare of trees in your area.
