Pound Lane junction with Garnet Court.

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 16:06, Monday 19 April 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Dear sirs, I write AGAIN to inform you that two oak trees adjacent to my property - 1 Garnet Court, Marlow, SL7 2AN are in need of attention. Last year I raised this point saying that dead branches are in danger of damaging property and causing personal injury. Over the winter, some branches fell and have recently been removed so my observations last year were not unfounded. No remedial action was taken from my last mails so I write again to let you know that both trees need urgent attention.

This issue is still unresolved and I believe it's your responsibility to look after the safety of property, persons using the public footpath and indeed passing traffic using Pound Lane. You have chosen to invest some considerable time and effort to inform me of my duties to look after the protected trees in and around my property so now it's time for you to do something about unsafe trees that are your responsibility. The dead branches need removing so I await to hear what action you intend to take to make safe a public area.

Yours sincerely,

Mike Walker.
