Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) and Conservation areas
Trees may be protected by Tree Preservation Orders or if they are within a conservation area. At Talking Elm Tree Services, we understand that work is sometimes required on protected trees for a variety of reasons. The trees may be unsafe, blocking light or just in need of necessary maintenance. Our consultants are able to liaise with the relevant local authorities to ensure that appropriate arboricultural works are carried out.
Tree Preservation Orders can be placed on individual trees, trees within a certain area, groups of trees or whole woodlands, and any tree species or size of tree can be affected. Anybody who carries out trees protected by a TPO without permission from the local authority has committed an offence, and could be fined.
Trees protected in conservation areas are given a similar status. If you are unsure if your tree is protected by a TPO or a conservation area we recommend you contact Talking Elm Consultancy and we will be able to talk you through the process and make any application for work on your behalf.
