I can only repeat that the primary function of a CA is to protected built 
form, and the protection of trees, although robust, is ancillary.
If a CA were proposed purely on the basis of trees it would be very 
vulnerable, and if it ended up in court I cannot see how it would succeed - 
but then again, I'm not a lawyer!

Hi Brynley, it's worth noting that creating a new conservation area is quite 
a process, and nothing like making a TPO - I'm sure you know that, but just 
in case.

Good morning
Thanks everyone for the very informative responses.

I get the overall impression that a large scale TPO is theoretically possibly 
but unlikely work for procedural &/or other reasons.
Also, it seems an area CA might be more appropriate and understandably easier 
to work with.

Thanks again

LB Bromley tried making a TPO on the whole borough in 1971 and it was 
thrown out by the High Court, not least because it was totally 
unreasonable and ignored the assessment criteria for TPO.
The same applies to a Conservation Area as it is (or should be) made 
on the basis of built form.  The protection of trees is for the 
setting they provide to the built form, not because they have any 
public amenity value in their own right either as individuals or groups.
That is why the only way an LPA can say no to a s.211 is to make a TPO 
- provided it is justified in the correct terms.

So Brynley, the short answer is no.

Good morning
Theoretically: would be be possible to place a area TPO on all trees 
above a certain size in an entire district?
(I’m thinking drastic ‘emergency’ action) Thanks
