Trees - arboriculture and preservation orders

Trees - arboriculture

We are responsible for the maintenance of trees and woodlands on council land as well as providing free advice about tree safety and protection. 

We will only prune or fell trees if they are unsafe. We will not remove or prune trees because of issues such as leaf litter, too much shade or TV reception. Healthy trees will only be pruned when required.

If you are a council tenant and have any issues regarding trees please contact your local area housing office.

We can also assess trees on private property but the cost of any tree work will need to be met by the owner. If the tree is in a conservation area you or your contractor will need to give your local planning office six weeks notice before you intend to undertake any tree work.
