Tree Maintenance

Trees and Woodland on Public Land

View pages in this section

The council is responsible for tree maintenance in:

  • Streets in the core area of Wellingborough and Finedon. 
  • Closed churchyards in the Borough.
  • Parks, Open spaces and Cemeteries in the core area.
  • Council owned industrial units in Wellingborough.

General tree enquiries can be reported to us through our online reporting form or by contacting Wellingborough Norse.

Wellingborough Council has a duty to manage the collective tree stock for the benefit of the wider community and in accordance with good arboricultural practices.

To meet its legal obligations the council manages its trees by carrying out programmed tree inspections on a regular basis.  Each inspection involves an assessment of the tree's health and condition and identifies any remedial tree work required.  Any work required is placed in Annual Work Programmes.
