Trees and high hedges
Work to trees
You only need consent to do work to a tree if it is in a conservation area or has a Tree Protection Order.
Use the interactive planning map to find out if your tree is within a designated conservation area or has a Tree Protection Order.
If your tree is in a conservation area you should check whether you will need consent to carry out work.
If your tree is under a Tree Protection Order you will need to apply for consent.
