Local council issues tree preservation orders to stop Network Rail felling
Bromley Council has taken steps to protect a group of mature trackside trees that are likely to be targeted in the rail operator’s plans to fell all ‘leaf-fall’ species
A local authority has imposed preservation orders on trees growing on Network Rail land to stop them being felled by the operator.
Bromley Council said on Friday it had issued two tree preservation orders (TPO) on a group of mature oaks, sycamores and ash trees which grow alongside the railway – many of which are likely to be targeted if the rail operator carries out its “enhanced clearance” plan to reduce delays, as revealed in the Guardian this week.
