Trees may be protected because of a Tree Preservation Order; because they fall within a Conservation Area; or because they are subject to a Condition attached to a Planning Permission.

If you are considering undertaking work to a tree or hedgerow, the Tree and Landscape Officer can advise you if some form of protection exists.
