For information and details of how to report a suspected case please read our guide attached at the bottom of this page.
You can use the button above to report a problem with any tree on land owned by Birmingham City Council. The e-form is designed to route your request to the relevant section of the Council to deal with the issue that you have reported.
Please note: Trees located on the Highway are managed and maintained by Amey PLC through the Highway Service. Amey PLC on behalf of the Highways Service will usually carry out pruning works in cases where trees are blocking street lighting, road signs or traffic lights, or where a tree is causing excessive damage to a property, or impeding vehicular or pedestrian access.
Trees that are located elsewhere (except for private trees) are managed and maintained by the Parks & Nature Conservation Service who contact the relevant landowner to approve any necessary work.
Please note – trees are the responsibility of the land owner. We are not responsible for trees in private gardens. We can take legal action to ensure that unsafe trees on private land are made safe. The owner of the tree would normally have to pay for the necessary work.
We are fully committed to caring for our trees to ensure they continue to thrive for the benefit of the people and wildlife in Birmingham. Management and maintenance of Birmingham's trees is to a high standard to make sure all the City Council's duties and legal responsibilities are met.
A request can be made for a tree to be planted in a street near you by pressing the Tree Planting Request button above and we will check if this is possible and let you know.
