The proposals by the Winckley Square Community Interest Company outline how four whitebeam trees, one Norway maple and one ash tree will be felled.
Two other trees – a willow and a horse chestnut – will have branches removed.
Preston City Council is currently partnering with the Winckley Square CIC, Groundwork Lancashire and Myerscough College to undertake improvement works to the Square.
As part of the proposals there will be 42 new trees and plants planted in Winckley Square.
No objections have been raised by planning officers and the plans are due to be nodded through at the next planning committee on Monday 8 April.
The full proposals are available to view on the council website.
