There are new regulations affecting Tree Preservation Orders -  The Town and Country (Tree Preservation)(England) Regulations 2012.

There are several changes which came into force on 6th April 2012, this includes changes to the dead, dying and dangerous exceptions. It is now necessary to get consent from the Local Planning Authority to work on dying trees and it is only possible to carry out work on dangerous trees "to the extent that such works are urgently necessary to remove an immediate risk of serious harm", otherwise five days notice to the LPA is required for work to dead or dangerous trees.

It is now possible to apply for repeated operations such as pollarding or trimming or programmes of work.
