Tree Management

Dorset Council Tree Policy (adapted), and Swanage Town Council Tree Strategy

Swanage Town Council is responsible for the management of all trees located within its parks, open spaces and woodlands. The Council recognises the value that trees bring to the environment, as well as their contribution to the quality of life of residents.

The policy and strategy documents above (adopted by the Council on 12th December 2022) set out how the Council is committed to proactively managing trees on its land, and provides the context for how decisions regarding trees are made.
