Tree Management & Protected Trees (TPOs)

Report a Tree Problem

Blaenau Gwent Council's Green Infrastructure Team currently co-ordinates the management of the Council's tree stock located on land within the ownership of Blaenau Gwent Council.

The Tree Policy for Council Owned Land and Managed Trees and Woodlands has been produced to inform the public, Councillors, staff and other parties of when, why and how Blaenau Gwent Council will undertake works on trees and woodlands located on our land.

The Council is compliant with all relevant statutory legislation and local and national policy regarding the management of trees and woodlands, this includes the management of trees to reduce the associated hazard as well as taking into account social, economic and environmental benefits that a healthy urban tree stock provides.

Please use the report a tree problem form to submit a query or report an issue for trees and woodlands located on Council owned land.

TPOs within Blaenau Gwent County Borough

Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) apply to specific trees and woodlands in the County to help protect them.

It is illegal to cut down, prune, destroy, damage or do any work if there is a TPO in place. In order to carry out work you must complete an application form.

If you are proposing to work on any tree or woodlands with a Conservation Area you will also need to fill in an application form to get permission to do any work.
