Skelton is well endowed with mature trees, particularly in the Conservation Area.
Approximately sixty trees (individual and in clusters) have Tree Preservation Orders issued by various local authorities over the years. These Orders stipulate that agreement must be sought from the City of York planning department before any work can be carried out on a protected tree.
Other trees are protected because they are within the Skelton Conservation Area which by definition provides the same degree of protection.
