Tree Preservation Order (TPO)

Sinah Lane
The Town and Country Planning Acts give
Havant Borough Council the power to protect trees,
using a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).
Everyone can examine the plans at Havant Borough Council,
(Public Service Plaza, Civic Centre Road, Havant, PO9 2AX)
and see what trees are protected in their own
and neighbouring gardens.

The greatest danger to the Ash trees of Hayling Island
is not development and unauthorised felling but Chalara.
The fungal disease may devastate Britain's 80m ash trees.
Symptoms of the disease can be visible on leaves,
shoots and branches of affected trees.
View the attached Tree Council Guide To Identification.
