Weed control

Our Street Cleansing team is responsible for the control of weeds on streets including around established trees.

The work is done by an external contractor but is managed and coordinated by the Street Cleansing team. 

Weeds are treated between 2 and 3 times per year, spring, summer and late autumn and this is also dependant on growing conditions.

Treatment of weeds involves the application of glysophate to the weeds on roads, pavements and tree pits. Young staked trees are maintained separately.

Generally, noticeable die back of weeds happens within 3 weeks of the treatment taking place.
