CCS had made objections to Wokingham Borough Council's decision to impose a TPO on trees on land in Woosehill, but saw its arguments thrown out by planning bosses.
In October, the developer was granted permission by the council to build a five-bedroom, two-storey home at the site, which has remained derelict since the previous home on the land was destroyed by fire in 2007.
However, complaints from local residents following the felling of around 80 trees led the council to serve a TPO on a small number of remaining trees on the land.
The developer claimed that the trees did not contribute to the site's character or appearance, had limited visual amenities and did not have the potential to secure greater prominence in the local landscape.
Before the council committee unanimously voted in favour of retaining the TPO, councillor Stephen Conway said: "I strongly support this TPO, but it is a great shame that we were unable to save more trees on the site.
"They do have great community value and by saving these trees we have been able to salvage something from the remaining trees."
The order protects six birch trees, one cherry, one black locust and one maple tree.
