Site and Location Plans for Tree Surgeons

According to The Arboriculture Association, some trees are protected by legislation and you need to ensure you establish the legal status of trees prior to carrying out works on them. Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) are administered by Local Planning Authorities and are made to protect trees that bring significant amenity benefits to the local area. Normal TPO procedures apply if a tree in a conservation area is already protected by a TPO. However, 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.
