Request a new Tree Preservation Order

Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) protect trees which are considered to be important to a local area. They may make an area visually more attractive or may be of historical significance. The order may cover anything from a single tree to woodlands. Hedgerow trees can be protected, but not hedges, bushes or shrubs.

It is a criminal offence to carry out works to legally protected trees without consent from us.

For more information please see A Guide to Tree Preservation Orders.

You can request a new Tree Preservation Order if you feel that a particular tree or trees should be protected.

Once we have received your request we will assess the tree(s) and will notify you of our decision on whether a Tree Preservation Order will be put in place.
