Trees and woodlands

Details about trees and woodland managed by Cumberland Council.

In Carlisle, the management and maintenance of trees on council owned property, such as in our parks and gardens, is managed by our Green Spaces staff. 

They regularly check trees for damage and ensure they are in good health. They also prune them when required.

Landowners have a responsibility to control any invasive weeds. Although it is not a legal obligation, they grow and reproduce quickly.
