Tree works and inspections What do we do? We are responsible for the management, inspection and maintenance of council owned trees located throughout the borough in accordance with best practice and legislation. To find out more, visit our frequently asked questions page. As part of our commitment to improving the management of our trees, we have a comprehensive tree database containing information about the boroughs tree stock, including when they have been inspected, maintained and will be due to be maintained in future. Arboricultural Work Although we are responsible for the above, we do not carry out any private work. If you are looking for someone to carry out private work, you can contact one of the contractors on the select list of Arboricultural Contractors. These contractors regularly carry out work within the local area. Whist these contractors carry out work on our trees, we can not be held responsible their actions. Adopting a tree As part of the Green Streets Project we would like to offer residents with the opportunity to adopt their own street tree on the pavement outside of their house or a suitable commemorative tree to be planted within a park or open space.
