Tree management

Our responsibilities

We are responsible for trees on land we own, such as parks and open spaces. 

Visit Staffordshire County Council to report a problem with trees on pavements and highways.
Trees in school grounds are usually looked after by the school.

Some privately owned trees are protected by a TPO and consent is needed before any work is carried out on them.

Tree management

How we manage trees is set out in our Tree Strategy and associated good practice guides.
