You can check if a tree is protected using our map below. The green areas indicate a Conservation Area and the purple areas indicate a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). The purple areas are indicative only. For details, click the purple area and follow the link provided to access the TPO document.

Our interactive map shows details of tree preservation orders and conservation areas. In these cases, permission from the Council for any tree work is likely to be required.
