Trees are an important part of our local environment and provide us with a variety of benefits that improve our quality of life. Most people agree that trees are a good thing when it is the right tree in the right place. However a tree of the wrong species in the wrong place can sometimes create problems such as overhang boundaries, blocking sunlight or street lighting and in extreme cases cause damage to property. Often disputes arise because trees grow! 

For more information on tree safety and how we manage our trees see the information below.
