Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

It does still apply but you can ask the Council to consent to the removal of the tree.

Its very unlikely they would refuse in the circumstances but it is important that it is done.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

i want to sell my house

i grow clematis etc up the trunk so don't want to particularly remove it

I am not certain why this is an issue for you?

If you are selling your house, it is something for the new owner to worry about.

You are only under a duty to tell them of TPOs if they enquire because it will sure on their local search.
If the tree is dead and it falls and injures someone, you are liable in negligence
