Trees managed by the Council

Tree condition survey

All trees that we are responsible for have had a condition survey carried out on them. The tree condition survey is invaluable in:

  • Helping to identify each year’s requirement for essential priority remedial works
  • Informing the ongoing tree re-inspection programme recommendations for re-inspection dates
  • Helping to ensure the Boroughs tree stock remains safe and healthy
  • Retaining an invaluable green resource for recreation and bio diversity 
  • Adding aesthetic landscape value

Different species

Numerous different species have been identified and catalogued; many in Melton County Park and the large open spaces in and around Melton Mowbray. Others are in closed churchyards around the Borough and some on greens and commons that fall under the borough councils jurisdiction.

The Council's Environmental Maintenance team are trained and certified to carry out most of the work in house, giving the Council the ability to look after and manage the environmental conditions and standards of many areas, in their entirety.


The Council are responsible for the maintenance of a number of road side hedges, as part of a working arrangement with Leicestershire highways. We also maintain hedges surrounding our own properties. In general they receive maintenance twice a year outside of the bird nesting season.
