Trees and the current planning laws

Always up-to-date with the latest legislation, we can advise our clients regarding Tree Preservation Orders & Conservation Areas, Hedgerow Regulations, High Hedges, Planning Policy and procedure, Protected species and habitats, 'Duty of Care' responsibilities.

We will often submit planning applications for tree works on a client’s behalf, and, if necessary, liaise directly with the planning authority. Further guidance on planning law in relation to trees can be found on most local authority websites.
