Its over 12 years since I worked in MOD  but my comments may be of use. 
Working in the Portsmouth area we had local agreements with Tree Officer. 
We did have some trees under pressure from residents overlooking a green in 
the late 1970's and the LPA placed a TPO on the tress at our request to 
protect them.
Portsmouth Naval Base of historical importance raised further issues even if 
trees were not visible the LPA TO had to be called in before we did any work 
to trees.
Sometime around turn of century planning conditions applied to MOD sites and 
we had to gain permission for any development from the LPA but I cannot 
remember a refusal.

So yes a TPO can be made on trees on MOD sites.

Subject: TPOs and MOD land

Dear All,

A resident in the London Borough of Hillingdon has been sent a letter by the 
MOD stating that they are going to be cutting an Oak down along their 
boundary to renew security fencing. 

The resident has asked if we can make a TPO to protect the Oak.

It's not really worthy of a TPO, but I am interested in the legal side of 
this situation.

Can a Council make a TPO to protect a tree that affects MOD land?

Cheers

Trevor
