Ryedale District Council

Tree management

The Tree and Landscape Officer advises on all arboricultural matters including Tree Preservation Orders and trees in Conservation Areas. Advice is also given on landscaping requirements in connection with planning applications.

The Council has recently produced guidance notes in relation to landscaping on development sites entitled 'Supplementary Planning Guidance – Landscaping on Development Sites'.

The removal of hedgerows is legally subject to notification to the Council. For further advice on the Hedgerow Regulations contact John Clayton - Tree and Landscape Officer.

The Woodland-Trust can offer information on ancient trees, for further information visit The Woodland Trust web site.

For High Hedge information and a guide to the new legalisation please visit the GOV.UK.
