Residents asked to help cultivate a tree strategy

Published Monday, 21 May 2018

Residents in East Northamptonshire are being asked to help cultivate a strategy on how East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) looks after trees in the district.

The guidance and principles of the strategy will cover common issues with trees, as well as supplementary information on how ENC intends to manage its trees. Private tree owners will also be able to use the strategy.

ENC are welcoming comments via an online survey, running from 21 May to 2 July. The survey can be found at www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/TreeManagement

Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council says:

“The flora and fauna of East Northamptonshire is something very close to my heart and having this strategy to help focus how the council tends for its trees is very important.

“Looking to the future, we hope to have this document adopted by all local Town and Parish Councils to create a sense of continuity, across the district, for our residents.”
