Trees for Removal

Our Arboricultural Officers carry out scheduled and ad hoc inspections of all of our street trees. All inspections consider:

  • the individual tree
  • its condition
  • whether any maintenance work is necessary to maintain the tree in a suitable condition for its location.

Sometimes we have to remove trees. This is usually because the tree is dead, diseased or dangerous.

This page shows the details on tree removals within Southend, including the location and species of the tree and why it was removed. This page does not include tree removals for planning purposes.

When a tree is removed, we record the location to make sure that the tree cover within the town is maintained and extended in line with our policy.

The exact location for the replanting is constrained by any existing underground/overhead services, continued presence of tree roots/old stumps/soil pathogens (a pathogen is a bacterium, micro organism or virus that can cause disease), maintaining safe sight lines etc.
