Chelmsford City Council

Chelmsford, along with the rest of England, is now in lockdown until further notice. You can find out what this means and get other useful information on our coronavirus updates page.

Request a protected tree check

If you have already checked our TPO register, but are still unsure if a tree is protected, you can ask us to do a search for you.


Request a search

To request a TPO search, you will need:

  • your name, address and contact details

  • the address of the property with the trees you would like us to check

  • a site plan indicating the area, if where you would like us to check is unclear from just the address

  • the reason why you would like us to check for a TPO

Once we receive your request, we will:

  • acknowledge it within three working days

  • complete the search within ten working days

  • contact you with information about any TPOs we find

If a tree is not protected, you can request a new TPO.
