Following a steep rise in cases across the region, the whole of the North East has been named as an area that will receive additional support. You can read the latest statement from LA7 leaders. There are no additional restrictions on the area or residents but with cases of Covid higher than ever before everyone is asked to continue to act carefully and responsibly. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. See Covid-19 advice and information for advice on how to stay safe. Thank you for playing your part in helping to keep the North East open and protect others.

Forest and woodland management


We are responsible for managing areas of woodland and forestry on our own land.

Contact us if you have a query about the management of woodland on public land.

If your query relates to trees rather than woodlands, there is more information on the tree management page.

If you have a query about the management of areas of woodland or forestry not on land owned by the council, please contact the Forestry Commission.

The Woodland Trust also manages a number of woodlands in the county. You can find out more information on their website. 

We publish advice on the planting and management of woodlands which can be found on our landscape guidelines page.
