  • Works recommended

    Thanks for your enquiry regarding a Council owned tree.

    A qualified tree surveyor has assessed your request and following a site visit has recommended works. On completion of the works you may feel the task undertaken may not fully address the issue raised. Aragon Direct Services employ qualified tree surveyors to undertake the inspections and all works recommended are in accordance within the guidance contained within the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028.

    Continued management of all our trees forms an integral part of this strategy. 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. Where inspection identifies maintenance work it is scheduled in accordingly with safety issues forming the highest priority.

  • Thank you for your enquiry regarding the tree. Unfortunately, at the present time there are no identifiable arboricultural reasons to justify carrying out any works.

    We recommend that you contact BT as they have a Statutory Undertaking as such this enables them to carry out Arboricultural works when it affects their lines or equipment.

    In regard to the car park this information will be passed to the relevant department for repair

    State changed to: No further action
