Dartford Council is responsible for trees and hedges that are on Council owned land - generally parks and open spaces.

Unfortunately we are not responsible for trees and hedges on private land. These are usually the responsibility of the owner of that land. Council staff will try and  give limited advice or assistance where possible, without legal liability.
We are also NOT RESPONSIBLE  for trees and hedges that on verges next to a road. Trees adjacent to roads are responsibility of Kent County Council.
