A Tree Preservation Order or TPO is a sanctioned order usually issued by the local planning authority in an attempt to preserve specific trees, species or woodland areas from intentional damage or destruction. If the tree you intend to remove, prune, or modify has a TPO, then you must file the correct paperwork and obtain permission before any work can commence. Foremans Tree Specialists Ltd have extensive knowledge and experience in the application process for work on preserved tree and can apply for the approval of work on your behalf. For more information on TPO’s feel free to visit our Tree Preservation Order and Conservation Area webpage.
