Yes tree dead with TPO

I added some text (green) within the original OPs question which I quoted.  I realised afterwards that that might not have been visible unless you 'expand' (read more) the original question within the post where I quoted it.

 

That green text included the link which states that a dead tree, whilst exempt from the need to 'apply', still requires a notification of intent to remove and, unless subject to a woodland TPO, would require a replacement and that the replacement takes on the former tree's TPO.

 

There are a few 'mystery' parts of the equation which would only be resolved by seeing the original application and knowing fully what happened subsequently.

Thanks, noted. So if a tree is to be cut down because it is dead, it does not require permission, it requires 5 days notice in advance and there is an obligation to "plant another tree of an appropriate size and species at the same place". But there is no option for the Council to impose a condition. Indeed, it looks like a Council shouldn't even take an application for remove a dangerous tree. Finally, though, if (and only if) the replacement is not planted then and only then) the Council can specify size and species.

 

Let the dead stump rot away. End of TPO. Could voluntarily plant a replacement, but it will not be TPO'd unless the stump is removed and the Council notified.

My local TO is a pretty good guy.

 

When we have removed a TPO’d tree from a titchy garden it has nearly always been one of the 6 species that the general public have heard of.

Oak, ash, chestnut, sycamore, lime and birch.

 

All totally unsuitable for small gardens.

 

TO has always been happy with replants of more suitable species.

 

This also kills the cycle of repeating the problems that resulted in the decision to remove the tree in the first place.

Draws into question the ‘wisdom’ of TPOing a large tree in a small garden or the planning process that preceded house build....
