Trees on council land

Trees can be found on many of the properties and sites managed by the council. The council recognises that trees, woodlands and hedgerows make a significant contribution to the attractiveness and distinctiveness of the Uttlesford countryside and the district's towns and villages. Trees are also important for wildlife providing food and shelter for a variety of animals and other plants. Please report any problems with trees on land belonging to this council to us.  Trees adjacent to the highways or footpaths are normally the responsibility of Essex County Council's Highway Department. 

You can find who owns the land by searching  the Essex Property Asset Map (EPAM).
