Two large beech trees situated in the highway verge between the road and footpath near 17 and 19 Maybrook Gardens

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

There are two very tall and large beech trees in the above location. We live at 30 Maybrook Gardens and we are concerned that the trees have become so large that if they fall over or drop branches they could be a danger to my house ,other property ,residents and visitors. I have no objections to the trees per se but believe the height and spread should be reduced. I look forward to hearing from you.

  • We believe that the fungus might be 'Meripilus giganteus' in which case the roots of the beech trees will have rotted away. If this is correct then there is a chance that the trees could collapse at any time. We think an urgent inspection is called for.
