Work on trees. A reminder that if you are planning to carry out or have carried out any work on trees on your property (topping, lopping, felling, uprooting) then contact Teignbridge District Council first as Tree Preservation Orders, Conservation Areas, Planning Conditions, Felling Licences or Restrictive Covenants legally protect many trees in the UK. The ‘Tree Team’ at Teignbridge can be contacted on 01626 215747 (office hours) or google tree team teignbridge and follow the links. If you are intending to employ someone to carry out the work on your behalf then it is important to make sure that they are operating within the law, have the correct qualifications and are insured.
