Trees & Hedges

Trees have an important role to play with mitigating the impacts of global warming and creating much needed habitat for our native animal species. The Council is responsible for the maintenance of trees on the land that it owns, including trees on commons, in parks and open spaces. The Council also assesses applications for works to protected trees and high hedge cases.

The Council offer an online service to report an issue with a council-owned tree. To see more information about works on council-owned trees please see council-owned trees guidance sheet.
