Our Forestry Services

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)

Certain individual trees or groups are protected under the law by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or by being within a conservation area.

TPOs prohibit the cutting down, uprooting, topping, lopping, wilful damage or destruction of the trees it protects without the written consent of the local authority. The maximum penalty for carrying out works on TPO trees without permission is £20,000.

These orders can be placed on trees if the local planning authority deems them to have amenity value. Exemptions include trees that are dead, dying, diseased or dangerous and fruit trees grown for the commercial production of fruit.

Although the proper practice of sustainable forestry should mitigate the potential negative impacts, all harvest methods will have some impact on the land and residual stand.

Regeneration methods, whether natural or artificial, combine both the harvest of the timber on the stand and re-establishment of the forest.
We recently used Wychwood Tree Surgeons to remove two large trees and cut back some other trees in our garden. They turned up on time and were very personable. They immediately started work and were very quick and efficient. They used the chipper to get rid of most of the wood and left my garden very clean and tidy. They provided a very professional service and have great attention to detail, I would highly recommend them and will be using them again. Mrs K Davis
