Tree services for hedges and trees in conservation areas that have tree protection orders

Trees in Conservation Areas, Planning Constraints and Tree Preservation Orders 

The law protects trees and woodland under a range of legislation that makes it an offence to fell or prune trees without permission. It is necessary to determine whether any trees are within a tree conservation area and if they are covered by planning constraints or a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).

We can deal with the process of carrying out work on protected trees in tree conservation areas on your behalf. Contact us for more information and advice.

Protected Species & Habitats

To protect our environment, species and habitats in the UK, there are many pieces of legislation to adhere to when considering vegetation clearance works.
