Applying for works to a tree

How to apply

If you wish to carry out works to protected trees, either a tree protected by a tree preservation order or a tree in a conservation area, then you must submit a planning application to us (as the local planning authority) before carrying out the work.

Submit your planning application (planningportal.co.uk)

There is no fee required for this type of application.

Timescales to determine your planning application:

  • Tree(s) in a conservation area: six weeks
  • Tree(s) protected by a tree preservation order: eight weeks
