Tree preservation advice

If you are considering works to a tree which you feel is not protected, or are unable to interpret the map, please contact planning@oxford.gov.uk for more information.

All trees with a trunk/stem diameter greater than 75mm as measured at 1.5 metres from ground level are protected within a Conservation Area.

Works to a protected tree without permission can result in a fine of up to £20,000 in magistrates' court, or an unlimited fine if it reaches crown court.

For more information please read our Tree Preservation Orders page.
