Tree Management & Conservation


Wychwood Tree Surgeons are contractors for county councils, maintaining woodland trees, parks and open spaces, allotments and cemeteries. All aspects are undertaken including tree management and the planting of new trees.


Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs)

The law protects certain individual and groups of trees. Those trees that have Tree Preservations Orders (TPO's) or are within conservation areas are protected under a range of legislation that makes it an offence to carry out any work on those trees without permission from the Local Authority.

TPOs can be placed on any tree that has amenity value. Trees that are exempt from TPOs are those that are dead, dying, diseased or dangerous and fruit trees grown for the commercial production of fruit.

TPOs prohibit the cutting down, uprooting, topping, lopping, wilful damage or wilful destruction of trees without the local authorities consent. The maximum penalty for carrying out works to TPO trees without consent is 20,000.

For further information visit Communities and Local Government .



Regeneration methods combine both the harvest of the timber on the stand and re-establishment of the forest. The proper practice of sustainable forestry should mitigate the potential negative impacts, but all harvest methods will have some impacts on the land and residual stand.
