- The map of protected trees shows all of the existing TPOs in Midlothian.
Under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 (as amended), Midlothian Council can make a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) on:
- any individual tree
- group of trees
- or woodland area.
Before making a TPO, we must consider the preservation of the tree(s) to be "expedient in the interest of amenity", or that they are "of cultural or historical significance".
