  • A Tree Surveyor has inspected and found that the clearances are currently in line with statute highways requirements.

    The hedge and trees are all on a rolling 3 year inspection program so at the point where the highway is obscured, works would be instructed

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