You can do what you like if the tree officer recommends it. I've made several 
C Orders.

Section 4 of the standard TPO

Application to trees to be planted pursuant to a condition
4.In relation to any tree identified in the first column of the Schedule by 
the letter “C”, being a
tree to be planted pursuant to a condition imposed under paragraph (a) of 
section 197 (planning permission to include appropriate provision for 
preservation and planting of trees), this Order takes effect as from the time 
when the tree is planted.

Planning Act 1990

S.197Planning permission to include appropriate 'provision' for preservation 
and planting of trees.
It shall be the duty of the local planning authority—
(a)to ensure, whenever it is appropriate, that in granting planning 
permission for any development adequate provision is made, by the imposition 
of conditions, for the preservation or planting of trees; and
(b)to make such orders under section 198 as appear to the authority to be 
necessary in connection with the grant of such permission, whether for giving 
effect to such conditions or otherwise.

Just returned from a day that started with sunshine and ended with monsoon!
Many years ago Richard Nicholson brought into focus an LPA's power to make a 
TPO on a tree yet to be planted as a planning condition (he christened it a 
'CTPO' - no, nothing to do with Star Wars).
I confess that I have never encountered one, but I did speak to Mynors after 
the 2012 regs were enacted and he saw no reason why that power would have 
been removed.

Hello; some questions mainly for Tree Officers, I suppose, prompted by 
another incidence of post-planning enforcement period failure and/or 
disappearance of trees just a few more than five years on from completion of 
development.

1. Why is it that trees that shown on planting (and/or tree protection) plans 
approved to satisfy planning conditions, shouldn't be subject to an automatic 
default consideration of TPO status?
2. Is there a difference between a future amenity benefit sought from trees 
shown on an approved 'landscaping scheme' and the level of amenity 
necessarily attributable to a tree for a TPO outside the context of a 
planning development?
3. Shouldn't 'planning' shouldn't be far more discerning regarding the 
landscape elements of schemes that really merit conditioning for longer term 
benefit? Does a tree shown on an approved planting plan have only the same 
status in planning as, say, the daffodil bulb scheduled on the same plan to 
be planted nearby?

Any answers / thoughts gratefully received.

Kind regards

John Cooban
Crawley, West Sussex.
