Does My Tree Have a TPO on it?

Updated: Jun 24, 2019

Tree preservation orders (TPO's) are put in place to protect any tree for a variety of reasons. It may be environmentally significant, historic, attractive or any number of other reasons. Anybody can apply to have a TPO placed on any tree for any reason. If one is in place then permission must be granted by the local planning authority before work commences on a tree, whether that be felling, crowning, pollarding etc. This is easily done, but not always granted. Work carried out on a tree with a TPO without consent can carry a hefty fine, so always check first, even if you are fairly sure that there is not one.
