Report a Tree Problem
Overall form progress:
The council is responsible for the safety and management of trees on land in its ownership, and trees on road verges (but not trees in hedgerows alongside roads). The safety of trees on privately owned land is the responsibility of the landowner, and trees in hedgerows alongside roads are the responsibility of the owner of the hedge. If you see a tree that you think is a potential public safety problem, please use this form to let us know about it. We will inspect the tree, and if it is owned by the council, any work considered necessary will be prioritised according to the level of risk it poses to people or property. If the tree is privately owned we will advise the landowner of any safety issues. You can also report other tree issues on council land that are not related to safety. These will be assessed by us and any works deemed necessary will be prioritised accordingly.
