Neighbouring Trees and TPOs

Recommended Posts

Good Evening All

 

Interesting question. If trees on a property are protected by a TPO but the neighbouring property isn't does this mean that the neighbour may prune back to the property boundary without application?

Absolutely not . The tree is protected in its entirety from root to shoot tip and any disturbance or wilful damage or unlawful pruning is criminal damage and punishable by law .
I’d suggest Googling the caveats and wherewithal’s of TPO’s and it’s impacts on the breacher of said order .

There certainly are circumstances where a person, not being the owner of a tree which is subject to TPO, may undertake work to the tree without recourse to anyone’s consent.

This is very significant and very interesting. Do we have any law case precedent or principle to support? Many thanks.

There was such a vacuum created by the multiple sharp intake of breath by the collective TO fraternity at the Mynors Barcham Trees seminar when this subject was broached - and the myth shot to, well, you know - that I think my ears popped 😂

 

Just search "actionable nuisance" and set yourself about 3 weeks aside to read previous discussions - a selection attached below:
