Tree Preservation Orders
A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is usually made by a local planning authority to protect a specific tree or woodland from deliberate damage and destruction such as:
A TPO can be placed on any tree and can also apply to woodland. It is commonly used for urban and semi-urban settings, and for trees with high ‘amenity’ or ‘nature conservation value’.
As a legal tool that prevents harm from being done to trees, it helps maintain the amenity value that a tree offers.
It also protects trees that have been removed without consent with a duty to replant them.
The Importance of TPOs
New Orleans is famous for its historical districts, national parks, and forests.
Local governments have created tree preservation districts intended to protect the existing tree canopy, and facilitate tree maintenance, and planting of trees.
An example is the Metairie Ridge preservation district that fulfills tree preservation methods such as:
Facilitating related urban forestry activities in the district
Adding aesthetic appeal
Increasing comfort and property values
Generally improving the quality of the environment
Hence, a TPO in New Orleans can benefit not only the community but the environment as a whole.
When a TPO is in place, it provides:
Legal basis for a council to prosecute people who ignore tree protection orders where fines can be significant.
Planning decisions for proposed development projects to ensure the public that the construction company is fully aware of any threats to trees as part of the consultation process.
Records on local authority registers help build a vital picture of the various species of trees across the country.
Big Easy Tree Removal honors Tree Protection Orders in New Orleans, hence, you are assured that we will help you protect your trees.
With our tree preservation services, you will continue to enjoy the benefits of having healthy growing trees on your property.

Responsibility for Tree Preservation
When you are a property owner in New Orleans with a protected tree, you will be responsible for the maintenance and protection of all protected trees on your property at all times.
Hence, Big Easy Tree Removal provides these tree preservation services in New Orleans to help you maintain and protect your trees:
Our specialists will ensure the health of your protected trees during construction.
If your trees get damaged because of construction practices, we will repair the damaged tree or replace it for you so that you will not have to pay penalties.
If any non-construction-related activity is determined to be the cause of future damage to, or death of, a protected tree, we will replace the tree to avoid penalties.
We work with property owners to make sure that there is authorization in writing from the owner of the abutting property regarding cutting or trimming your trees.
Protection during construction activities
Excavation, filling, grading, trenching, demolition, and construction activities will require that the trees in your property will be protected.
Our trained tree technicians will preserve your trees from damage during construction by:
Erecting a protective barrier around each tree or group of trees that are designated for preservation.
We strictly follow protective barrier guidelines as required by the locality.
Use other measures of protection deemed necessary when barriers are impracticable.
Trenching or digging to deal with displaced roots.
Our skilled arborists will make sure that the roots of your tree remain intact and manually redirect the roots ways from excavated areas.
Cutting, trimming, or clearing protected trees with applicable developmental approval procedures.
Our skilled tree technicians perform this procedure only when:
The protected tree is diseased or hazardous as certified by our licensed arborists.
The protected tree is located in a buildable area and would substantially hinder the development of the site.
It is allowed by the parish or locality, especially for heritage, historic, or landmark trees.
