Over the past few weeks our team have been working hard to remove a good number of trees requested by a holiday home park owner. We were inundated with compliments on the time scale this took and how the site was left exactly as we found it minus some treesand being a lot tidier. Along with this feedback many residents commented on the amount of sun and light they now benefited from now that the trees have been removed. Below are some before and after pictures, just so that you can see the amazing difference the tree removal made.
Tree Preservation Order
What is a tree preservation order (TPO)?
A tree preservation order (TPO) is a part of town and country planning in the United Kingdom. A TPO is made by a local planning authority (usually a local council) to protect specific trees or a particular area, group or woodland from deliberate damage and destruction.
How to find out if your tree has a TPO?
When purchasing a property your solicitors should have informed you of any trees on your land that do have a TPO, if you are unsure it’s fairly simple. Contact your local council/authority who will be more than happy to assist you.
What if your tree does have a TPO?
If a tree on your land that you wish to carry out works on has a TPO then a professional and experienced tree surgeon will refuse to carry out any works until consent proof is granted.
How do you get consent?
In order to gain consent from the authority to carry out works, you must have a tree consultant carry out a report. This report along with its recommendations must be put forward to your local council in application to carry out these works. The decision will then be sent to you, which is when you are able to begin works.
At JJandB Treecare we specialise on a daily basis removing trees, many of them with TPO’s. If your unsure and do not know where to begin do not panic, we offer a tree consultancy service which provides you with a report along with application to the council and the decision then sent to you so you don’t have to lift a finger.
