If you live in a conservation area or have a beautiful protected tree in your possession, you can have peace of mind whilst we handle things. From the T.P.O application paper work to the individual work specifications, administration to arborists, we can take care of it all.
A little T.P.O Info..
Trees bring pleasure to many people, T.P.O's administered to insure that for years to come, they can continue to benefit their local communities and surrounding area. This protection is crucial for trees under threat from development and such like.
Any Species can be protected, this can be a stand alone tree to a group in woodland.
The T.P.O is a written order which makes it a criminal offence to alter/reduce/fell the tree in any way. Anyone found guilty of any of the mentioned offences will be liable.
Trees within a conservation area are automatically protected, here's what you need no know..
Normal TPO procedures apply if a tree in a conservation area is already protected by a TPO. But if a tree in a conservation area is not covered by a TPO, you have to give written notice to the LPA (by letter, email or on the LPA’s form) of any proposed work, describing what you want to do, at least six weeks before the work starts. This is called a ‘section 211 notice’ and it gives the LPA an opportunity to consider protecting the tree with a TPO.You do not need to give notice of work on a tree in a conservation area less than 7.5 centimetres in diameter, measured 1.5 metres above the ground (or 10 centimetres if thinning to help the growth of other trees).
