 Trees

Select the relevant option below, you will then be able to report your issue on our map, your report will be received by our inspection team for review and action where necessary.

Trees that have fallen and blocked the path need to be removed. Some trees fall to the ground and are quite secure. ECC will contact the owner of the tree to advise them that they need to remove it. This process can take 8-12 weeks.

If the tree is partially fallen and is “hung- up” or stuck in other surrounding trees ECC may remove this as a risk to public safety.

path blocked by tree

Dying, dead or diseased trees beside a path could potentially pose a safety risk to people using it. They will be assessed to see if any action is required. However, they are also very important to biodiversity and even dead trees can be very stable for many years.

Unless a tree looks to endanger or obstruct people using the public right of way, we are unable to take any action and you should contact the landholder.
