The association, the region's largest social landlord, will use the survey data to programme its tree maintenance works in 2016/17 and beyond. The application deadline is 20 November, with a decision due on 14 December.

An SBHA representative said: ""We are currently pulling together a five-year asset management plan taking account of our external responsibilities, and the specialist tree survey will feed into that overall plan."
