The Council is responsible for the upkeep of all trees and hedges across its land but, in particular, is responsible for the trees lining Skipton High Street.

These native lime trees were planted in 1897 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria.

The trees are protected meaning that if they are damaged or die, they must be replaced. A number of the trees have been replaced in recent years - and this programme of replacement will continue as required.
