Tree Preservation Orders

Trees may be protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) or other legal procedures to make sure that they are not lost or damaged needlessly. We can issue a TPO for specific trees. If a tree is protected by a TPO our consent is required before any works are carried out. Trees located in conservation areas also require consent for works to be carried out.

To check whether a tree is protected by a tree preservation order you can use our online interactive map here. Please note - the Tree Preservation Order (TPO) datasets are indicative only and any queries should be sent to or using our online tree preservation enquiry form - Tree preservation enquiry | Selby District Council

To check if a tree is within a conservation area you can use our online interactive heritage map here.

If you wish to carry out works to trees covered by a TPO or is within a conservation area please view our forms and guidance notes here.

To have a tree assessed to see if it warrants a TPO status, please complete the TPO evaluation form.
