Redbridge Council addresses concerns over High Street tree root pruning


Redbridge Council has issued a statement following concerns over the roots of High Street trees being cut.

“We carried out planned root pruning works to several trees located by footpaths that were being resurfaced. Root pruning is standard practice to help maintain the footpaths in a safe condition… We carry out root pruning on a regular basis with contractors who are highly experienced in this kind of work. This important maintenance ensures our trees can continue to flourish while pavements remain safe for pedestrians.”
