A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) can be placed on single trees, groups of trees and even whole woodlands.

Impact on planning decisions

Anyone wanting to cut down, top, lop or uproot trees subject to an order must first apply to the local planning authority for consent unless an exception applies. Unauthorised work to a protected tree is a criminal offence.

Responsible organisations and guidance

Tree Preservation Orders are made by local planning authorities following the guidance.
