Not all trees and hedges are preserved but those that are or come under a conservation area need approval from the local council for any work carried out on them. Failure to do so can result in a fine of up to £25,000 and a court appearance. This fine can be placed upon the owner of the tree or hedge as well as the person carrying out the work.
We regularly work with the following councils submitting applications for Tree Preservation Orders and Conservation Areas for our clients.
