Coronavirus has impacted on our tree services and there are changes to our services at the moment:

We are now only responding to emergency tree issues, for example situations in which trees have fallen due to storm damage. To report an issue please call our Contact Centre on 0161 393 7117 or email


We are committed to providing and maintaining great places for our customers to live, and this includes looking after trees in our neighbourhoods.

We are very fortunate to have a healthy and rich tree stock which provides lots of environmental benefits, promotes health and wellbeing to our customers and enhances the appearance of our communities.

How do we manage trees?

We only carry out essential works to trees where they are dead, diseased or in immediate danger of causing structural damage to our properties. If this is the case, please call our Contact Centre on 0161 393 7117.

Where don’t we manage trees?

We don’t manage trees that are causing problems with any of the following:

  • Lack of sunlight
  • Falling leaves
  • Dripping sap or bird droppings
  • Phone wires
  • TV reception

Anything else will be classed as a routine issue.
