Tree and Woodland Framework

Find out how we intend to maintain and enhance Torbay’s trees and woodlands.

The trees and woodlands in Torbay and woodlands are a vital part of the environment. We are committed to maintaining and enhancing them. We are one of the UK's richest Local Authorities in terms of biological diversity. We want to ensure that our actions show our commitment to the environment.

A Tree and Woodland Framework for Torbay

The production of this document is such an action.

This framework defines not only our actions regarding the management of our tree asset. It is also a vehicle to link into the local strategies that are currently in place. With all this in place, our aim is to deliver our green infrastructure goals.

The document shows we need long term commitment and consistency. We recognise this. This is how we will realise our ambitions for environmental enhancement and protection.

The aims of the framework are to ensure:

  • the safety of our trees
  • maintain and encourage biodiversity
  • maintain and improve landscape quality

With these elements in place, we will improve the quality of life for residents and visitors. Both now and in the future.
