Burnley Borough Council adopted a Tree Management Policy in November 2007, which sets out how trees on council owned land will be managed.
Trees in Parks and Open Spaces
The council is responsible for the maintenance and management of trees in all borough council owned parks and open spaces.
Trees on Highway Verges
Is the responsibility of Lancashire County Council. Any initial enquiries will be directed to Lancashire County Councils Highways.
Private Tree Advice
If you have a complaint about a tree on private land or a neighbouring property then this is a private matter. Our planning department can advise on tree preseveration orders and high hedge cases.
Trees on Calico Housing Land
The councils tree team no longer maintain trees on Calico land, for all Calico enquiries please contact Calico on 0800 169 2407.
