The dangerous dead tree, which has been reported to you on numerous occasions by multiple residents on the road and has been dropping small branches for several years now, has just dropped a large branch approx. 4m long, diameter 20cm onto the path. This is very dangerous to pedestrians on this relatively bust pedestrian route to and from town and local schools. It also damaged the hedge of 30 Dukes Wood Av. The tree needs felling immediately or it could well cause serious injury or death to a pedestrian, not to mention vehicles regularly parked under it or property should the whole tree fall.

  • Another smaller branch has fallen from the tree in the wind today. I fear that the next time I write a message here it will be to inform you of damage to property or worse, to a pedestrian. This tree needs to be removed immediately please.
