Trees in the borough are managed by the Parks and Open Spaces Team and more specifically our specialist Tree and Woodland Officer.
Wyre Borough Council owns trees on parks and opens spaces as well as in cemeteries, closed churchyards and car parks. Our trees are managed conservatively with the emphasis on attending promptly to hazardous trees and those affecting properties.
We also manage street trees on some minor roads in the borough acting as agents for Lancashire County Council Highways Department, with trees on A roads and in the rural areas being managed by them directly.
Wyre Borough Council, acting as a Local Planning Authority, has some influence in the management of privately owned trees only where they are afforded statutory protection under a Tree Preservation Order or because they are in a Conservation Area. Please refer to the relevant pages.
