  • Thanks for your enquiry regarding a council-owned tree.

    In accordance with the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028, a qualified tree surveyor has visited the site, assessed your request and concluded that there is no need to undertake tree works.

    We don't prune or remove council-owned trees because they are considered too big or too tall unless it is deemed to be dangerous.

    All council-owned trees are surveyed by a qualified surveyor for safety every one-to-five years, depending on how much the area surrounding them is used. We also carry out maintenance work if it's needed.

    For further information please read the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028

    I trust this answers your enquiry, however, should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Aragon Direct Services.

    State changed to: No further action
