Many questions about trees and hedges are answered on the Council’s website by following this link: https://www.scambs.gov.uk/content/trees-faqs
To find out if trees are legally protected with Tree Protection Orders (TPO) and Conservation Areas (CA) please use the planning maps on the Council’s website.
Make sure that you select TPOs and Conservation Areas in the map legend. TPOs are blue polygons and CAs are within the pink line. Left click on the map to show details of TPOs and CAs. Open the TPO link in the dialogue box to view the original TPO map.
IMPORTANT – The position of the TPO on the Council’s website maps is indicative only and is not legally binding. The original TPO map takes legal precedence.
