How can I find out
if the trees within my ownership are protected?
You can check to see if a property or area of land has a Tree Preservation Order on it, or if it is located within a Conservation Area, by looking at the council website or by contacting the local council (usually the planning department). If your tree is protected then you will need to apply to the Council to carry out any work. See also ‘A brief guide to legislation for trees
