Tree maintenance

We are responsible for the management of trees which are on council-owned land.

Not all trees in the borough are owned by Boston Borough Council. Trees that are located on highway verges are generally the responsibility of Lincolnshire County Council. Other trees may belong to local farmers, other private land owners, local housing associations and some trees may not have an owner.
