We have a good relationship with the trees officers at the local councils and will quite often meet on site to discuss what tree work would be acceptable prior to application.

Once it has been established that an application is required, we can provide a full planning application service as part of the instruction to carry out the work.

Note: Any unauthorised work carried out on preserved trees can be subject to heavy fines of up to £20,000.

Time scale: Applications for permission usually takes up to
6-8 weeks.

Tree Preservation Orders (TPO's) Conservation Areas

Many trees are now subject to planning conditions. To check if a tree you are considering having work done to falls under a planning condition, you will need to check either:

• Your house deeds or
• With your local council, the planning department
