What happens next

After you have reported a tree issue to us, we aim to:

  • inspect the tree within 10 working days
  • complete works (where necessary) within 30 working days.

If the tree you have reported is causing a danger to the public, we would treat this as an emergency and aim to attend within 2 hours.

We will only prune overhanging trees in certain circumstances: see Overhanging Trees.

If sufficient time has passed and you feel an update is needed, please email streettrees@merton.gov.uk quoting your enquiry number and post code.
