Protected trees

Many trees in the borough are protected and you generally need our consent to carry out work on them.

Find out if a tree is protected

Trees may be protected because they are located in a conservation area, or are subject to a tree preservation order (TPO).

Check if your property is within a conservation area.

Check for existing TPOs by going to find your nearest and enter your postcode. 

To request a copy of a TPO, please use the planning file request form.
