What are protected trees?
Trees can be protected by Tree Preservation Orders or located within a Conservation Area.
If your trees are within a protected area approval would be needed from your Local Authority before any form tree work could be carried out. We are experienced in dealing with protected trees and can give honest advice on whether the work you require is likely to be approved or not.
How do I know whether my trees are protected?
We will check whether your trees are protected before we carry out our initial site visit so we can provide you with the correct advice from the start. Once we have given our advice and quotation, we will liaise with the Local Authority planning department and carry out all the necessary paperwork on your behalf, if we are contracted to carry out the work.
