When submitting an application, you will need to provide some documents.

What supporting documents you need?

Along with the fully completed application form, the following must be submitted:

  • Sketch plan identifying the trees
  • Condition of tree(s)
  • Subsidence
  • Other structural damage  

If you need to go onto someone else's property to do the work, you must obtain permission from the land owner.

Permission to undertake work to a tree protected by a preservation order or in a conservation area doesn't mean we give you permission to enter someone else's property to do the work. The owner of the tree must agree to this.
