Shouldn't that be the other way round? That the LPA have first to prove that 
they have jurisdiction? - after all the tree not being on site at the time 
the order was made is not claiming an exemption.

With a great many urban trees looking at changes in land use and why the tree 
was planted is likely to give you better age data than simply measuring it.

If you're dealing with an area TPO all you need is to prove that it's younger 
than the order and, if not, whether it has enough amenity value to justify 
being protected.
