On verge outside Greenleaves, Milton Avenue, Gerrards Cross SL98QN

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 17:28, Wednesday 28 April 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This is the second time I have raised this problem. The tree that is growing in the verge outside my house is falling down. Everyday its angle gets steeper. I have recently installed new fencing on my property's boundary and if (when)the tree falls, it will undoubtedly break the fence. Please note that I give notice that as and when this occurs, Buckinghamshire Council will be liable for the damage caused. I don't know what more I can do to flag this problem. The first time I reported it, you replied that no action was needed, a conclusion I found surprising. Since then, tree has continued to lean further over and I suspect will fall down soon. Please also note that the footpath beside th tree is used extensively my the pupils and parents from Maltman's School. We can only hope the tree doesn't collapse when a child is walking beneath it.
