Question

Hi All.

 

Looking for a bit of advise.

 

We Recently moved to a new house that has TPOs on several trees around the boundary. These TPO's were put in place when the house was rebuilt following demolition of the origonal shack back in 2000.

 

Question is, can I "tidy" the TPOed trees in any way ?. Thinking removing the odd lower limb that have grow out over sheds/greenhouses etc.

 

Many Thanks

 

JD

Only your council officer who deals with applications to work on protected trees can answer your question. Give them a call.

I would say its pretty likely that you can, however you will NEED to first get written consent from the council. To get this you will need to make a formal application to the council, this can be done on line or by post, using the correct form.

 

Once the work has been agreed and you have written consent from the council, the work needs to be carried out in accordance with good arboricultural practice and to British standard.

..and ideally by a professional tree surgeon.
