Street tree removal register

Most trees near buildings don't cause any damage. 

For information about subsidence and tree root damage, read our tree issues page

If a street tree is causing a nuisance or damage, we may have to remove it. 

For example, sometimes tree roots can cause or contribute to building subsidence on clay soils. 

Where a survey by a qualified professional proves a council-owned tree is causing nuisance, damage or subsidence, we need to take action.

We will first consider engineering and pruning solutions to preserve the tree.

If it appears there's no option but to remove the tree, we will consult residents on the proposal. This is in line with the Environment Act 2021
