Outside Number 5 Highover Park

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 17:21, Tue 24 July 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Fallen tree on the north side of Highover Park blocking the path. Currently hanging by a "thread". Note at least one OAP neighbour has been cutting that half fallen tree/hedge back a little to enable cars to use road unimpeded. These local OAPs do not own the trees. #5 owns the tree, both fallen and the overhanging problem (see below). When this does completely fall it will block the carriageway. Also just a few yards away you will see evidence of more poorly maintained trees overhanging. Regularly we have to remove broken branches as tall vehicles such as waste lorries tear off branches leaving them on the carriageway obstructing vehicles. Theses trees also belong to #5. Please can this be seen to. Note the request report/ 1307770 did mention this overhanging issue. However given the constant need to remove debris clearly this still needs addressing. It does appear that these issues do not concern #1 or #3, however the vegetation at #5 is causing issues due to lack of maintenance.

  • Fallen hedge on pavement has been removed. Unfortunately the overhang is still there. At it's lowest point I am able to walk into the overhang. When will this be removed ??
