Additional advice on trees

Rowan tree berries

If you want to find out if a tree is protected or you would like the council to preserve a particular tree contact our tree section.

Whether or not a tree is preserved, we encourage all owners to carry out work to a good standard.

Don't be tempted to employ casual contractors who call at your house offering to do work on your tree. An apparent 'cheap job' may result in considerable expense at a later date. If they carry out works to your trees without the necessary consents, any enforcement action will be taken against you as the landowner.

Always check that your contractor is fully insured against third party risks.
