Do you have a Tree Preservation Order (also known as a TPO) on a tree on your property? If so, we can explain the implications and guide you through the often-complex legislation that this can entail.
A TPO is issued by a local authority where a single tree, group of trees or woodland brings amenity value to the local area. When they are first issued, property owners have 28 days in which to raise any objections.
As a property owner, it is important to understand what TPOs mean for you. For example, it is illegal to prune, lop, damage or cut down a protected tree without applying to the local authority for consent.
Breaching an order can result in fines and substantial court fees.
