How we look after trees in Haringey.

How we look after trees

We do everything we can to help every tree survive and thrive, like:

Dying and diseased trees

All trees are inspected by a qualified and experienced tree professional. Where trees are dying or diseased, there is a serious risk that they will break and fall in a storm.

The most common disease to affect trees in Haringey is Ganoderma fungi.

Unfortunately, we need to cut down trees that are:

  • dying
  • badly diseased
  • unplanned and have begun growing too close to buildings  

If a tree is cut down because of disease, we plant another tree in its place.

You can find more information and images of diseased trees on the Forest Research website.
