A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is a legally enforceable order made by the Local Planning Authority (LPA) to protect trees and woodland in the interests of public amenity. The power to make a TPO is contained in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Town and County Planning (Trees) Regulations 1999 and 2008. The principal effect of a TPO is to prohibit the cutting down, uprooting, topping, lopping, wilful damage or wilful destruction of protected trees or woodlands unless permission has been given by the LPA.

Penalties
Anyone who commits an act in contravention of a TPO is liable, on conviction in a Magistrates Court, to a fine of up to £20,000. For a serious offence, a person can be committed for trial in the Crown Court and if convicted, can be liable to an unlimited fine.
