Hi John,

This is a choice I believe that most local authorities consider stumps to be 
safer at heights of 1m or more than creating a trip hazard when cut near to 
ground level. So you could consider the Highways Act and what they deem an 
unacceptable in terms of footpath, paving slab distortions. I think HCC 
considered any trip hazard great than the height of a 20p coin as 
unacceptable.

Apart from that stumps in highways prevents utilities from occupying sacred 
planting spaces only to be grinded before they are due to be replaced.

Hi all.

Can anybody advise on the following?

Is there any legislation regarding how high a felled tree stump on highways
is to be left?

I have seen some councils where stumps have been left at 1m.

Regards

John
