We hold public liability insurance to the value of £5 million.
We offer help and advice concerning Tree Preservation Orders and Conservation Areas. Trees may be legally protected by tree preservation orders (TPO’s) made by the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Town and Country Planning (trees) Regulations 1999 and by temporary planning conditions. TPO may be imposed to prevent work. Clearance takes six weeks. Fines for unauthorised work to protected trees can be severe for both owner and operator. You also need to give notice if you want to prune or remove a tree in a Conservation Area, so the Council can decide if the tree should be protected by a TPO. We can take the necessary actions on your behalf to obtain permission to carry out works.
