For advice and support around burglary, theft or fraud, visit the relevant pages on our website.

We have had increasing reports from addresses across the city saying that they have had flyers posted through their letter boxes offering tree management services that are charging unrealistic amounts for this specialist work.

The information on the leaflet with regard to the identity of the alleged company/person is usually false.

If you receive any leaflets advertising this service always be sure to check it online or with people you know.

If you have a doorstep visitor you are concerned about:
  • Do not allow them into your home
  • Take the time to check their credentials by requesting an ID
  • You can also check their company details online, with a friend or neighbour.
  • If they are genuine, they will understand this.
Checkatrade is a great resource to check a business or find alternatives that are verified and reviewed by customers.

Kind regards,
Prevention Support Team.
