Our Management Approach
Council-owned trees - our management approach
Wherever possible the council aims to manage its trees on a minimum intervention basis, pruning only when necessary and allowing where possible full height and canopy development. This accords with modern urban forestry practices and addresses both a
recognised trend towards encouraging larger trees in towns in response to so many large tree losses, and also to an anticipated need for larger trees to mitigate for a changing climate, where their value as shade trees and in slowing runoff is expected to increase.
This is the forefront of a move towards an asset-management approach to Wyre's urban forest.
