Tree preservation orders

Many trees in Poole are protected by a preservation order and/or conservation area. These are trees of high amenity value or have significant impact on the environment and have been identified by us and protected by an order.

Find out more about tree management in Poole.


The Tree Preservation data shown, whilst based upon the registers, is not the legal document and is supplied for information purposes only.

TPOs are available for viewing by visiting the Planning Reception at the Civic Centre Monday to Thursday - 9am to 5pm, and Fridays 9am to 4.30pm.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the data, which is supplied in good faith, we will not accept any liability sustained as a result of reliance thereon.

Please be aware as well as Tree Preservation Orders and conservation areas, trees can also be protected by planning conditions.
