The council's trees team deals with enquiries relating to trees within East Cambridgeshire. They are responsible for making Tree Preservation Orders, commenting on planning applications affecting trees, determining applications for tree works, giving advice on general tree care and managing the council owned trees. Please check our guidance leaflets page for some useful information.

Unfortunately the team is unable to give specific advice on tree management and we recommend you engage with a suitably qualified tree works specialist.  The council does not operate a list of tree work specialists but would recommend speaking to neighbouring residents for recommendations or viewing the list of Arboricultural Association approved contractors at the following website ARB Approved Contractor Directory for Trees (external link).  

The East Cambridgeshire District Council Tree Strategy 2018 to 2028 (PDF) has been adopted and is available to view, along with the recent Review and Action Plan for 2019 (PDF).

You can find the contact details for the Trees Team on the contact us page of this website.
