Trees: apply and view

Applications for tree work and information about protected trees.

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. From 1 April 2019 we will no longer manage protected trees or development management matters for New Forest District Council. All tree-related matters outside the New Forest National Park boundary should be directed to New Forest District Council’s Tree Team:Contact details for protected trees within the National Park boundary remain the same. To view TPOs, conservation areas and tree work applications please visit the interactive tree map to the right and search by case number/reference. For further information on a tree work application please contact us 01590 646620 (9am-12pm, Monday-Friday). Get help and advice if you are looking for a tree surgeon.
