Dacorum Council Tree Works


Dacorum Council tree works are expected provisionally from  2nd March for up to a couple of months.  In summary :

- Where significant defects have been identified, dead wood / damaged growth will be removed

- Some low branches over the line will be removed 

- Growth around several sets of steps will be cut back 

- Trees with severe defects will be felled or pollarded  

- 16 large Beech located towards the Queensway crossing are lapsed pollards. Re-pollarding now would possibly be too stressful for the trees to cope with so they will have 50% of their canopies removed. This will appear harsh, and is actually a lot of growth to remove, but has to be carried out for safety reasons – old pollard growth junctions can fall apart.  

If anyone has specific questions, please email treesandwoodlands@dacorum.gov.uk
