We take action if a tree is dead, diseased or dying, damaging property, or blocking safety signs or lamp columns. The tree at this location does not fall into any of these categories and so we will not be taking any action at this time. We will continue to monitor this location through our routine inspections and will take action in future if necessary. If you would like to know more about how we manage hedges and trees, you can find information here: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ roadside-trees-and-hedges.aspx
