Over hanging trees lining the road are creating drain blockage and slippery footpaths

Reported via mobile in the Tree Branches Overhanging category anonymously at 14:21, Wed 2 November 2022

Sent to Island Roads 13 minutes later. Enquiry ref: 16229665.

The trees in front of our property are very low and when it is windy branches are breaking off causing problems for both road users and foot pedestrians. At our property we keep picking up the branches but are worried that the trees in there current state may be a bigger issue if they are not trimmed.

  • The trees are way too large, ideally they need Pollarding. The Sap drops on our cars in the Spring and the (helicopter) seeds drop in the Autumn. In the winter the drains block with the leaves. The branches are so long they are touching/ covering the street lamp on the opposite side of the road. This makes the street very dark. The trees cut out lots of daylight but most importantly the branches are thick and long and if they fell it could damage my wall and Car but more importantly it could potentially kill someone. I would appreciate your assistance. Regards Dean
