There are estimated 90,000 street and park/green spaces trees that are under the management of the Tree and Woodland Team, which consists of three qualified tree officers with a combined experience of over 50 years in urban tree stock management. All tree work is carried out by an external contractor.
The tree stock that is managed by the Tree and Woodland Team is inspected cyclically between two and five years depending on where the tree is located, for example trees in busy roads with high traffic volume (pedestrian and/or vehicular) are inspected more frequently than trees in cul-de-sacs.
Additionally, trees are sometimes inspected in an ad-hoc way when additional monitoring is needed, or occasionally if prompted by an enquiry from a resident.
Tree and inspection data is held on a tree database called Arbortrack.
