Do I need permission?

Tree Preservation Orders (TPO): A TPO is legal order made by the District Council as Local Planning Authority (LPA) which makes it an offence to prune, fell or willfully damage a tree covered by the order without the Authority’s consent. If a tree is covered by a TPO, it requires a formal application to the relevant authority. The council then has 8 weeks to process the application and make its decision. The fines for carrying out work to a protected tree are severe and can be up to £20,000, so it is always best to check if a tree is protected.
