Emergency tree works
We operate a 24-hour tree emergency service for Council-owned trees, or for private
trees that have fallen onto Council owned land. This service is for dangerous trees
such as trees with large hanging branches, where a tree is in danger of falling, or
where a tree has actually fallen. For tree emergencies please phone 020 7974 4444.
