TPO’s (Tree Preservation Orders) are placed on trees by the local council to protect any tree that has a strong amenity value. Maybe it’s a rare specimen of a particular species or that it’s just the only tree in the vicinity. An application also has to be made to carry out works on these trees be it from tree pruning to tree felling, every TPO application has to include; site plans and location maps as well as reports and detailed descriptions of proposed work. about…trees will undertake this on your behalf for free. There are exemptions to TPO’s and Conservation area protections, these are if the tree is dead, dying or dangerous.

Below are some definitions of what Arboriculture is:

Arboriculture .Noun: the cultivation of trees or shrubs [Latin arbor tree + culture]

Arboriculture is the cultivation and management of trees within the landscape. This includes the study of how trees grow and respond to cultural practices and the environment, as well as application of cultural techniques such as selection, planting, care, surgery and removal.

The main focus of arboriculture is amenity trees; such trees are maintained primarily for landscape purposes for the benefit of human beings. Amenity trees are usually in gardens, parks or urban settings, and arboriculture involves aspects of plant health, pest and pathogen control, risk management, and aesthetic considerations. Trees offer cultural and natural heritage benefits beyond production of wood products; for this reason, arboriculture needs to be distinguished from forestry, which is the commercial production and use of timber and other forest products from plantations and forests.

Practitioners of Arboriculture are called “Arborists” commonly known as Tree Surgeons.
