Trees in parks and open spaces

We manage thirteen parks across the district as well as many areas of open space. If you are notice a problem with a tree or hedgerow growing on one of our parks or open spaces, please contact our parks team or call 01543 308846.

Many smaller open spaces within the Lichfield City are owned and managed by Lichfield City Council. Parish councils are responsible for most of the open spaces in our villages, so please contact your city/local parish council for more advice.

Trees in streets and schools are generally managed by Staffordshire County Council. To report a problem with a street tree or trees obstructing the footpath or road call the Staffordshire Highways helpline, on 0300 111 8000 or register your enquiry online.

Problems with a tree in school grounds should be reported to the school concerned. They will be able to give you further advice.

Trees in churchyards

The trees in churchyards are usually the responsibility of the church and we recommend that you contact the churchwarden or incumbent for advice. Some closed churchyards are now maintained by Lichfield District Council and the churchwarden will be able to confirm this. If a churchyard is managed by us, please contact the parks team on 01543 308846 for advice.
