I never see Council looking after the trees - why is that the case?

Council maintains more than 65,000 street trees. Council has a routine cyclic maintenance program where each tree under Council’s responsibility is inspected every two years. Trees may be pruned or removed as a result of this inspection. The cyclic inspection routine does not negate any requests from residents for pruning or inspections due to safety concerns. These tree requests, once reviewed, are prioritised according to the level of risk.
