Protecting hedges?

Postby ferdinand » Sun Sep 04, 2005 4:59 pm

My impressions are that:

1 - A TPO can only be put on a tree in a hedge, not the hedge itself.

2 - Ancient hedgerow legislation does not apply to garden hedges.

And a question:

3 - Where is the dividing line between "hedge" and "tree". Could a TPO be put on a (theoretical) 40ft beech hedge?

Who doesn't understand this obsession with fences. Proper hedges are vastly superior.

By and large a hedge would not attract a TPO however, if the hedge were of sufficient amenity value to be worthy of a TPO then it could be called a group of trees.

You can find out if your tree department would be willing to put an order on a substantial hedge, they TPO trees for a variety of reasons and 'amenity value' is highly significant.
