Basis for TPO's

Subject: Basis for TPO's

Seems like a daft set of questions but:

On what basis does a TO subject a tree to a TPO?
Is it purely visual amenity, conservation, ecological, environmental or all? 
Does the TO concern himself/herself with the geography, whether it be urban, 
sub-urban or countryside? 
What relevent factors come into play? 
If the tree cannot be seen by numerous households and enjoyed by such, does 
this affect the decision? 
In terms of expediency and development and if the development where in 
secluded grounds, would the TO be inclined to TPO or not?
Is a judicial review the way forward in overturning the TPO, or does this lie 
only on appeal?
I've trawled the 2009 amended Blue Book, but may be missing the point........
Appreciate your reply as always..... and a Merry Xmas to UKTC...........!!!!!!
