The  Regulation 3 notice should include the LPA's reason for making the TPO. 
From  what you've said I'd be interested to find out what the LPA's reasons  

Er "Well while I was there I thought I'd TPO everything in sight! Might as  
well make a day of it."
"The tree(s) are an important visual amenity in this area." 
"I don't like the bloke who lives next door."
"Something fishy is going on so we thought we would just in case."
The above are reasons for TPOing that I've come across recently, though not  
necessarily written in the paperwork. I've got some sympathy with the last 
 but not for the one that it related to.
Incidentally someone mentioned a TPO being for 100% of the people... I know  
what you mean but it wouldn't; I doubt that even the most famous tree in the  
country has been seen by any more than 0.0001% of the "people." Anybody got  
visitor numbers for the Major Oak?
