Trees are home to 50% of terrestrial plant and animal species and are critical to retain in order to halt the decline of biodiversity, mitigate the effect of climate change and reduce the environmental risks to public health such as air pollution.

Our Ethos

The ethos of Tree Law is to provide ‘creative legal solutions that won’t cost us the earth’.

The reference to cost there isn’t to monetary cost but to cost in terms of continued impact on the environment being caused by big businesses.

Tree Law will be run net carbon zero and will have protecting and supporting biodiversity at its heart.

Tree Law will be the only law firm where 5% of our time will be committed each month to pro bono work for clients who are unable to afford the legal support that they need.

Our Experience

All work is dealt with by Sarah as Director of the business ensuring quality and expertise is provided on all projects.

Tree Law is run by Sarah Dodd, director/founder, with 22 years’ experience of civil and commercial litigation and as the owner of a couple of key Court decisions in the area of the environment

Cordin & Others – v – Newport City Council – claim arising from flood damage to properties in Newport where water escaped from the Gwastad Mawr reservoir

Keates v Haringey Council – claim arising from the refusal of Haringey Council’s refusal to pay the costs which arose from a refusal to remove a tree preservation order on a protected tree.

Making Tree Law net zero

Net zero carbon definition from the Office for National Statistics – Net zero means that the UK’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions would be equal to or less than the emissions the UK removed from the environment. This can be achieved by a combination of emission reduction and emission removal.

Offset Carbon Footprint: 16.51 tonnes of C02e
