Tree inspection gets under way in West Oxfordshire

Over 12,000 individual trees and over 35 hectares of woodland will be surveyed across West Oxfordshire during the next six weeks.

West Oxfordshire District Council is responsible for maintaining trees on land that it owns. The District-wide survey will help the Council to plan for this and carry out any work that is needed to ensure that the trees are safe and can continue to thrive.

The survey will continue throughout August and September.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment said “We last did a tree survey in 2006 and it’s important that we carry out another inspection so that we can plan basic maintenance. Trees are vital to our local towns and rural areas, from an environmental and aesthetic standpoint, and the survey will help us to improve and enhance the overall quality of trees in West Oxfordshire.”

Maintenance work will be carried out during the autumn and winter, or sooner if necessary for safety reasons.
