Trees and hedges

Many trees are covered by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). If you are intending to prune, fell or do any other works to a tree you should check with us to see if permission is required. There are also controls over trees located within conservation areas. For more information on trees and hedges, follow the links below.
