5. What Are You Applying For?
7. Identification Of Tree(s) And Description Of Works
Please identify the tree(s) and provide a full and clear specification of the works you want to carry out. Continue on a separate sheet if
necessary. You might find it useful to contact an arborist (tree surgeon) for help with defining appropriate work. Where trees are
protected by a TPO, please number them as shown in the First Schedule to the TPO where this is available. Use the same numbers on
your sketch plan (see guidance notes).
Please provide the following information below : tree species (and the number used on the sketch plan) and description of works. Where
trees are protected by a TPO you must also provide reasons for the work and, where trees are being felled, please give your proposals for
planting replacement trees (including quantity, species, position and size) or reasons for not wanting to replant.
E.g. Oak (T3) - fell because of excessive shading and low amenity value. Replant with 1 standard ash in the same place.
