  • Aragon manage the City Council's tree stock in line with the formally adopted Trees and Woodlands Strategy.

    In line with the above, all trees are inspected every 3 years and at that point if any health and safety issues are picked up, works are instructed.
    The trees in the cemetery have all been surveyed within the last 12 months and any required works are within the system ready to be undertaken.

    We are unable to remove trees simply in the basis that they are tall and swaying.
    Trees are mechnically designed to sway, this is the mechanism by which they oppose the forces exerted by wind.

    State changed to: No further action
