  • 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 a council-owned tree to stop the nuisance of overhanging branches.

    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.

    You have a legal right to cut back any branches hanging onto your property. You can only cut them from the point where they cross over onto your property. We recommend that all cut material is disposed of as normal garden waste. It is also recommended that the services of a suitably insured and qualified tree surgeon are used to carry these works out on your behalf.

    Before you cut back any trees, you need to find out if it's protected by a Tree Preservation Order, or if it's in a conservation area. If a tree is protected, you'll need to get permission to cut it. Please visit conservation trees and hedges for more information.

    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
