Tree Planting and Young Trees

Each year the council plants approximately 300 trees ensuring that the visual amenity of the street scene in the borough is guaranteed for future generations.

The Council will plant trees on its own land to renew formal schemes, increase the number of trees in towns and replace felled trees where appropriate.

The new trees are intensively maintained for the first three years. They are watered regularly between mid March and October, mulched annually and checked for tight ties, loose stakes and missing guards. Any young trees which die, are severely damaged or don't establish to independence in the landscape are removed and replaced in the next planting season (November to March).
