Trees

We are responsible for the trees that we own. This generally means trees on roads and pavements and trees in parks.

We will also speak to private land owners where their trees are causing hazards to the public, such as blocking a street sign or light.

Trees on the street we look after

Trees are inspected on three or five year cycles and pruned when needed. Sometimes trees do not need pruning. The work we do is suitable for the type of tree and is not harmful to the tree.

We also:

  • carry out work on damaged trees. So if they have branches hanging off or that have fallen off
  • inspect trees that are damaging a property
  • manage damaged, diseased or dying trees
  • prune trees that are blocking sight lines for cars
  • prune trees that are blocking street lights

Sometimes we will prune a number of trees on a certain road or street but one may be left unpruned. This could be because cars are in the way or birds are nesting. If this happens we return and prune when we are able.
