Doing work to a tree

You need to check to see if your tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or is in a Conservation Area before carrying out any work.

This includes any work to your neighbour's tree, which you are entitled to cut back to your property boundary.

Check if a tree is protected

If your tree is protected by a TPO then you will need to apply to do work to a tree with a preservation order.

If your tree is in a Conservation Area then you will need to give us notice of your planned work to the tree.
