We’ve had a great response to our blogs looking at answering those frequently asked questions surrounding everything related to the world of tree service and surgery. Today we look at Conservation Areas and why these are important.
Conservation areas are designated zones of notable environmental or historical interest, where the character and appearance of the landscape are legally protected. When you live in a conservation area, any work on trees, including pruning or felling, might require permission from the local council. This protection extends beyond individual trees with TPOs and encompasses all trees in the area with trunk diameters over 75mm, measured at 1.5m above ground. The goal is to preserve the beauty and biodiversity of these areas. Before proceeding with any tree work in such zones, always check with your local authority for the necessary consents to avoid legal issues.
