Tree Preservation Orders
Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) are used to protect selected trees and woodlands if their removal would have a significant impact on the environment and its enjoyment by the public. Priority for Tree Preservation Orders is generally given to trees which are considered to be under threat, for example where development is proposed.
Copies of Amber Valley Borough Council’s TPO documents can be downloaded from the TPO Documents webpage.

Trees in Conservation Areas may be protected by TPOs but where they are not, there is a duty to give us six weeks notice in writing before carrying out any work.
