Tree protection

​We will put a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) on specific trees and woodlands to help protect them. 

It is illegal to fell (cut down), prune, destroy, or damage trees covered by a TPO, unless we give you permission. 

Find out more about tree preservation orders on the Welsh Government website. 

Apply for permission

You can send us the completed form by email or post. 

Development Management (TPO)
County Hall 
CF10 4UW

If the tree or woodland you want to work on is in a conservation area, you can apply for permission using the same form.​

Read the Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on trees and developments (10.6mb PDF)​ to find out how we assess development proposals that might affect trees, woodlands, and hedgerows.​
