Badgers Way, Buckingham

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 09:15, Wednesday 26 May 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The trees need to be pruned. I ask this most years but nothing gets sorted. Every year I have to climb up a ladder to clear the gutters of leaves and 'tails' that the wind blows into the gutters from the trees causing them to overflow. Yesterday I could have easily fallen off the ladder - I am 67 years old - trying to clear the drains to prevent more rain damage. The trees are so high. I would have thought that someone would have thought that the trees would get very high before they were planted. A much smaller tree would have looked better. I do not want the trees removed, I like trees, but they are very tall.

  • I resent my request as on the first one, the answer I received was that the council would send a technician to look at the trees. No one has actually contacted me with an answer as to if or when the technician attended and what his / her outcome was.

  • I left a question on the 30th June asking when the technician was going to visit and find out what he had decided. Still heard nothing.
