Hi Will,

Short answer ... there simply is not an exception because the trees 
themselves are not actually causing an actionable nuisance or actual damage. 
I've been through this a couple of times. Have another read through section 
14 of the 2012 Reg's, it's not onerous. There is usually a work around. The 
only provision you might find is the one that says the trees can be removed 
if necessary to implement consented development.

Hi all,

           Similar question to one I asked last year relating to contaminated 
ground, is anyone aware of an exemption that can be used for carrying out 
works to removed contaminated soil around a TPO'd tree without having to make 
a full TPO app and wait the 8 weeks and yes we have all the required reports 
etc to demonstrate ground is contaminated etc, the area is part of a garden, 
TO wants the client to demonstrate an exemption !! my answer is Asbestos even 
though its in roofing sheet form is its asbestos and my client has a duty of 
care as they know its there. Thoughts welcome.



Will
