The purpose of this document is to offer answers to some of the most common tree related queries that members of the public refer to Milton Keynes Council Landscape Department and the trees for which they are responsible. The Council has limited control over the maintenance of privately owned trees.
The limited legal powers that we do possess are explained here.
The Council’s legal priority is to ensure that identified tree related risks are removed or reduced so that we can all safely enjoy the many benefits that a healthy and robust tree canopy cover brings to the Borough. This statutory obligation means that we require a system to ensure that we deal with higher priority tree risks within stated timescales. It allows us to maintain an efficient tree risk management system 24 hours a day for 365 days a year and manage budgets effectively. Tree issues that are low risk are not prioritised. The Environment team will work in collaboration with Housing Team and other internal stakeholders to deliver an arboriculture service.
