Fallen trees

We are still busy dealing with tree emergencies in Northampton. It may take up to two weeks to clear them.

We are prioritising more dangerous trees, i.e. those on the roads and pathways causing obstructions to vehicles and pedestrians.

We will then prioritise the rest accordingly.

We sincerely apologise for the delay.
