Common tree issues

When carrying out tree works we follow a rule of minimum tree removal where possible, and make sure it is in line with guidance on the general protection of trees and the South Tyneside Tree and Woodland Policy.

If you are having issues with your trees that are not covered as part of this page then please report it online

Works are sorted into high, medium, and low priority depending on the issue. Trees will be inspected where necessary by a member of the Tree Team.
