WICKLOW COUNTY COUNCIL REMINDER ON HEDGES AND TREES

In the interests of road safety,  landowners are reminded to ensure that trees,  hedges or other vegetation are maintained in such a condition that they are not a hazard to road users and that they do not interfere with the maintenance of the public road.

 

In particular,  branches which jut out onto the road,  including the footpath,  should be cut back.  Dead and unsafe trees should be removed.  Hedges should be cut and trimmed.

 

It is recommended that professional advice on the condition of roadside trees should be obtained from time to time.

 

When landowners are maintaining hedges or trees,  all reasonable care should be taken to ensure the safety of road users while this work is being carried out.

 

All necessary work should be carried out by 28 February, 2015,  in order to comply with the Wildlife Acts.
