A PETITION has been set up to tackle tree problems in Cramlington.

Cramlington councillor Barrie Crowther has launched the petition to address the issue of trees in the town.

“In Cramlington trees were planted decades ago when the town expanded, and in some cases the trees are too close to houses and have grown beyond the ability to maintain them,” he said.

“If people have a problem with a tree they want the county council to be able to do something about it, and currently they don’t.”
