Online services

TPO Portal

Avoid time consuming enquiries by encouraging the public to use this online self-service portal.

ezyPortal is fed directly from your TPO data held in Ezytreev. It publishes TPO and application/notification registers, including all relevant documents, and also offers a user-friendly interactive map search tool. Householders, neighbours, solicitors and others can check the protection status of trees by searching for a property and viewing TPO trees, Conservation areas and any s211 trees on mapping. Individual trees, groups, woodlands and areas can be interrogated via the map to find the species and type of protection, plus the application history of each tree.

Any member of the public can access information and view all related details, plus download legal documents of all TPOs (see a sample here).

Register of tree works applications / notifications

Any member of the public can use the map search to find trees or property they are interested in & find out if a tree has a TPO or is in a concervation area, see datails of where it appears on the protected tree register and download legal documents (see a sample here).

Application to carry out work on  protected tree(s)

Any member of the public can submit an online application for works to tree(s) protected by a TPO or a conservation area notice.
