Tree preservation orders and conservation areas
Trees damaged or destroyed without permission
It's a criminal offence to work on a protected tree in Southwark without permission from Southwark's planning department.
If, without putting yourself at risk, you are able to obtain information such as photographs or details of the contractor, this will help the council in any enforcement action.
Unauthorised works to protected trees can be reported directly to the planning enforcement team.
