Trees (subject to a TPO or within a Conservation Area) that have become unstable or are posing a threat to heath and safety should be made safe by the owner or occupier of the land where the tree is located.

During normal working hours contact the Council’s Customer Service Team on 02392 446015 for further advice.  If you are faced with a dangerous tree situation outside of office hours then instruct a tree surgeon to make the tree safe and take photographic evidence of the situation. Customer Services can then be contacted following the event.
