Tree safety management policy

We have a responsibility to ensure that our trees don't pose a danger to the public or property.

To address this risk the we have produced a Tree Safety Management Policy.

This Policy will ensure:

  • An overall assessment of risk is completed to identify high, medium and low risk tree zones
  • A system of tree inspections is in operation in relation to risk
  • A record of trees and inspections is retained
  • Systems and processes are identified that control and mitigate risks as identified from inspections
  • Staff who carry out inspections are competent to do so
  • Operation of this Policy will enable the County Council to mitigate tree risks to as low a level as is reasonably practicable
