Tree Maintenance Works
Ards and North Down Borough Council uses a proactive approach in the management of its tree stock. We engage an expert consultant to periodically carry out full inspection surveys for each of our sites, to assess the risk of significant harm from a tree or branch fall.
Upcoming Tree Maintenance Works
- We are planning to commence works in Glen Lyon Park, Holywood from Monday 4th December 2023. (13 trees to be felled, 3 to be monolithed and 1 to be maintained eg crown clean / reduction height / reduction weight)
- We are planning to commence works in Linear Park, Bangor from Monday 5th February 2024. (4 trees to be felled)
We are planning to commence works in Brice Park, Bangor from Monday 5th February 2024. (6 trees to be felled)
The works are for the purposes of good practice management, disease control and public safety; all trees are subject to an environmental assessment prior to being worked on which will prevent work happening that impacts our local flora and fauna.
The Council undertakes to replace trees in numbers in excess of those that need to be felled and has an annual tree-planting programme which sees many trees of both native and interesting unusual varieties planted over each Autumn/Winter season. For example, our STAND4TREES initiative aims to plant a tree for every person in the Borough, that is approximately 160,000 trees.
