Tree work applications
To prune or fell Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or conservation area protected trees in the National Park you must seek consent from us. For more significant applications, we'll supply you with a site notice to display on your land and we will also notify neighbouring properties. Where a neighbour submits an application, we will endeavour to ensure the owner or occupier of the land on which the tree stands is informed and given a chance to comment.

All tree-related matters outside the New Forest National Park boundary should be directed to New Forest District Council’s Tree Team:looking for a tree surgeon.
