We manage and maintain a number of trees within the parks, nature reserves, woodlands and housing properties. We are also the administration authority for Tree Preservation Orders and trees situated within Conservation Areas.
The Council looks after and manages over 28,000 individual trees, and also manage numerous woodlands and groups of trees throughout the district. We have an active inspection regime and each tree will be inspected at least every 5 years. However, we are aware that trees can sometimes change over this time and it maybe necessary to contact us if the condition of the tree changes.
We maintain the tree stock to ensure they are kept in a safe condition. As such the Council has adopted a set of polices to which we adhere to, this is also part of the Urban Forestry Strategy and links to what works we carryout and how trees are assessed.
We carry out a yearly tree planting program to replace any dead trees and new planting locations. If you see any places that would benefit from new tree planting, then please contact us and we will happily asses the site to see what trees can be planted. Any added trees will be planted in the next available planting season (between November and April each year), and depending on budget restrictions.
Please contact if you have concerns regarding the condition of our trees using the contact details in the footer.
