Find out about the different ways that the important trees in Rushmoor are protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) and conservation areas.

The law protects certain trees and groups of trees.

It is an offence to carry out work to trees that are covered by a Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) or to trees which are within a conservation area, without telling us.

Our Trees and development - our preferred approach page has useful information for anyone considering a new development near to trees.

How to find out if your tree is protected

If you already have the Tree Preservation Order (TPO) reference and would like to view a copy of its document and map, please see our Tree Preservation Orders in Rushmoor page.
