Trees and woodlands


Tree management on council land

We manage and maintain the trees on our land and are committed to enhancing trees and woodlands as a vital part of the natural and built environment.

We receive frequent requests to prune or fell trees on land we own. It is our policy to only carry out tree pruning or felling operations for health and safety reasons in line with appropriate arboriculture management.

We will not remove or prune trees because of issues such as leaf litter, satellite reception or shading issues.

Reporting a tree issue

If you want to report a dangerous tree please call us on 01698 403110.

If you are a council tenant and the tree is within your garden please contact your local housing office.

If the tree is in a conservation area or protected under a tree protection order then you will need permission.
