Tree Preservation Orders Q & A DCP Section 4.38
Detailed here are the discretionary legislative powers enabling local authorities to make and enforce Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). In addition the introduction of the Hedgerow Regulations 1997 has provided a further level of protection, as discussed at (4.386). The protection given to Historic Parks and Gardens is considered at (27.4). Although the reverse of tree preservation, the legislation related to the remedying of High Hedges is also noted.
