Who is responsible for roadside trees?

WHEN driving around Lincolnshire and along country roads such as Corby Glen to Bourne; Grantham to Corby Glen; A1 to High Dyke Stoke Rochford; High Dyke to Colsterworth and Grantham to Little Ponton, you can see rotten and dangerous trees hanging over the roads. Some of these roads are on school bus routes.

Are these roads inspected by Lincolnshire County Council inspection officers for damaged trees or are we waiting for a major disaster in windy and rainy conditions? I do hope it doesn’t involve a bus or car.

Who owns roadside trees? I would like to hear readers’ opinions.
