Tree Preservation Orders

Quite rightly and for good reasons, some trees are protected against unauthorised works, because for example, they are a particular species or in a designated conservation area.

treeTo find out the status of any tree, we will carry out a search with the local authority on your behalf, this should take about three working days. Most commonly no order exists and work can be progressed without further delay. However, should an order be in place then we would have to make an application. again on your behalf, detailing the proposed work.

A decision will take time, up to eight weeks, but once consent is given work can proceed.

We will undertake this process free of charge.
