New Tree Service for New Forest

Published Tuesday 16 October 2012

All tree-related matters in the New Forest will now be handled by the New Forest National Park Authority.

New Forest District Council logoThe tree team will handle Tree Preservation Orders, tree works applications and other relevant tree related issues throughout the National Park and will now also serve the New Forest district area, on behalf of New Forest District Council.

Steve Avery, Director of Park Services at the New Forest National Park Authority said: ‘As well as achieving savings for both organisations, the new arrangement will provide an integrated service across the whole of the New Forest district including the National Park.’

Councillor Paul Vickers, New Forest District Council’s planning and transportation portfolio holder, added: ‘The new arrangement is very similar to that operating today and ensures the continuing provision of a high quality service within the New Forest District Council area.’
