Problem with trees on Harlow Council owned land?

It became clear whilst out canvassing before the local elections earlier this year that some residents had concerns about the lack of tree maintenance being carried out by Harlow Council in recent years. Residents complained that trees that had in the past been cut back and reduced in height were no longer receiving such attention, blocking out light and causing concerns about root damage to their homes.

All council’s have a duty to ensure that trees on their land are safe and to take action if a risk assessment deems that they should be removed.
