Tree Preservation Orders and the Development process


When planning a development or changes to an existing building, any surrounding trees must be factored into the plans and one factor which needs to be considered is the Tree Preservation Order (TPO). These provide legal protection for trees and so processes must be properly followed in order to ensure that no laws are breached.

To make this legal consideration easier for you to understand, our team of leading tree experts have compiled an introductory guide that explains more about what the TPO is for and how to ensure you have covered them thoroughly when submitting plans for any development.

This will also get you access to the Treework Library – a growing catalogue containing historical publications, papers and information on trees as well as new technical guidance documents and technical notes to help manage trees better. In conjunction with our newsletter service, we will alert you when we add new, relevant materials and also keep up to date with other articles, news or stories that we add to our blog-feed.
