Street tree pruning programme

We have a street tree pruning programme for trees growing along the roadside. These trees are inspected regularly and a programme of pruning work is carried out by specially trained staff every five years.  When carrying out work on trees we use modern equipment and pruning techniques.  We do not carry out lopping, topping or pollarding.  We prune trees to: 

  • maintain their health and safety;
  • prevent physical damage to property; and
  • ensure roads and streets are kept clear.

You can check when we plan to prune trees in your area at the links below.   For information about reporting problems with trees go to our Report a tree problem page.
