Trees and Woodlands

Oak Tree

Trees are of vital importance to the world for many reasons.

Amongst other things they screen eyesores, frame views and form landscapes. Trees have significant environmental value, produce a habitat for many species and help provide us with cleaner, filtered air, shade in the summer and warmth in the winter.

Advice is freely available on any aspect of maintenance of Council owned city trees, for example:

  • Street Trees
  • Park Trees
  • Open Space Trees
  • Trees in Housing Areas
  • Trees in Council House Gardens (This does not include former Council Housing sold under 'Right to Buy')
  • Woodland Management

This involves work such as pruning, planting or felling of trees or woodlands that are owned by Aberdeen City Council. Also, the Council has a similar level of responsibility when managing the trees it owns to any private land owner or neighbour. In the first instance contact the call centre on 03000 200 292 for general advice. However, the City Council has guidelines for works relating to the trees it owns.
