Some trees in the borough are important either because of their age or because of their prominence in the landscape. Where these trees are under threat we can step in to provide legal protection by making a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).
We also designate conservation areas for their cultural and heritage importance. In a conservation area all trees with a trunk diameter greater than 7.5cm, when measured at 1.5m from ground level are protected.
Please note that the map is not a definitive statement of the existence/non-existence of a TPO. Contact us if you need a confirmation of a TPO.
If you would like to request a new TPO please read the leaflet below and complete the online application form below.
The Tree Preservation Orders below have recently been made by the council and we are in the process of deciding whether to make them permanent. If the consultation deadline has not yet passed, you may wish to comment by emailing email@example.com

Before carrying out work to a protected tree, you will normally need seek permission by completing an application form. There is no fee for making the application.
You might find the following documents helpful when completing your application:
Some works, such as removing a dead tree, or removing dead branches from a live tree do not require an application. However, you do need to advise us beforehand.
It is a criminal offence to cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage, or destroy a protected tree. The maximum fine in a Magistrate’s Court is £20,000 for each offence and in a Crown Court the fine is unlimited.
