Apply for tree works

Applications forms for work in Conservation Areas and covered by Tree Preservation Orders

Make a tree works application online

You can now make an online application to carry out works to trees within a Conservation Area or covered by a Tree Preservation Order through the Planning Portal. Planning Portal This link will take you to an external website...  

Alternatively you can download an application form in the planning application section.

Guidance notes for both types of application are available on the downloads section of this page along with an example of a completed Conservation Area Notice of Intent.  Please read these notes carefully as incomplete applications will be returned. 

Your application should include a detailed description of the proposed works, together with location details of the property and trees concerned.  Any additional details you can provide such as photographs, can also help to speed up your application.

We recommend you seek the advice of a qualified arborist to determine an appropriate specification of works for your trees prior to submitting your application. The Arboricultural Association This link will take you to an external website... has a list of approved contractors and consultants.

For further information or advice please contact the forestry team.
