Hi Jon,

I have to deal with a large 53-year-old area order in my area where I see a 
lot of tree replacements conditioned but no explanation is given as to how 
these trees are to be identified. 

The council aren't particularly good with tree issues, so I get the 
impression it is brushed under the carpet but it does considerably weaken my 
position when giving advice as I can't absolutely rely upon the "if it is 
less than 53 years old then it is not covered" comment. I know there are one 
or two additional caveats to that also.

So I think it is a big failing of the area order when it has been used out of 
context as permanent protection for trees when its use was designed for quick 
reaction and following up with individual, group or woodland protection.

Cheers

Dave

Good folk of uktc

 

Remind me what should happen if the removal of a protected tree covered by an 
area order is allowed, but a condition is given to plant a replacement tree? 
The order may or may not contain separate individual protected trees.

 

The order can't be altered to include an individual tree shown within the 
protected area, can it?

 

The tree officer who gave permission will remember but what is there on 
record to show a protected replacement tree? The replacement tree will 
clearly be younger than the order, so not seemingly protected to subsequent 
tree officers.

 

Do area orders get conditional replacement trees? Do they get Tree 
Replacement Notices?

 

Is this just a failing of the Area order?

 

Jon
