Tree Preservation Orders Stockport, Manchester, Trafford, & Cheshire
Tree preservation order (TPO) applications completed free of charge
During your no obligation tree surgery quote, we will fully explain the procedure we use to check for tree preservation orders (TPOs) and the difference between these and conservation area restrictions.
On your acceptance of our quotation, you will have peace of mind that we will complete all of the necessary checks, free of charge and prior to any tree surgery work commencing, even if you believe your trees not to be protected.
Where we find your trees are covered by a tree preservation order or conservation area restriction, we will inform you immediately, explaining the requirement to submit an application. We will then complete and submit your application to your local council’s Tree Officer and/or Planning Department on your behalf, free of charge.1
We regularly deal with tree preservation order applications for:
- Cheshire East Council
- Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
- Manchester City Council
- Trafford Council
Subject to obtaining the appropriate permissions, all works are carried out to British Standard 3998 (Recommendations for Tree Work), a requirement of all local authorities as part of any approved applications.
Please contact us should you require further information about tree surgery or the need for TPO applications.
