The Council has received communication regarding concerns over Ivy on the trees.
Ivy isn’t parasitic, doesn’t ’smother’ trees and generally co-exists happily with healthy trees. It can conceal areas of disease or weak branches or the Ivy gets high up into the canopy creating a ‘sail’ in a wind exposed tree.

The Council seeks expert advice from an arboriculturist Quantified tree survey reports are produced and the Council aims to act on any points raised acted in a timely manner. Periodic specialist inspection are supported by regular, routine visual checks.
If you do have any concerns and spot any fallen trees / potential hazards please contact the Council by email to email@example.com or send a private message to the Council’s Facebook page.
