Works to trees subject to a deed of covenant

All properties that were once owned by us have a deed of covenant that clearly states the legal responsibility of the owner. This is to safeguard the future protection of trees on council land after the sale of the land.

Purchasers must not fell, top or lop any trees on the property without prior consent from the council.
