As the home of Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire is well known for its trees, which play an important role in the appearance and quality of our environment. The Council works with Nottinghamshire's district and parish councils to manage more than 3,000 miles' worth of roadside trees.
Problems with trees
You can use our online form to report problems with trees, hedges or bushes.
Some trees and hedgerows have legal protection - please contact your district council for details.
Local councils in Nottinghamshire maintain roadside trees, and offer advice on arboriculture. Download our Tree Conservation and Maintenance Policy [PDF 44KB].
We use a system to rank tree work [PDF 15KB] that needs doing, in order to prioritise our work.
Forests and woodland
The Council offers technical woodland advice to the Sherwood Forest Trust and the Greenwood Community Forest.
We’re also very active in the reclamation of derelict industrial sites, working together with the Forestry Commission to develop redundant British Coal sites into forest and parkland for public recreation.
