Constantly raining sugary sap onto windows

Reported in the Tree debris (droppings, sap or seeds) category anonymously at 14:13, Monday 1 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2137637.

This very large tree is momentarily constantly raining sticky rap all over the back bedroom windows of 22 Sandford & the front windows of 77 & 78 Deaconscroft..also obstructing some sunlight to former by causing large shadows. The branches are dense, heavy & low hanging...but the sap really is a problem, could it please be looked into. The tree is one of two that are really way to big to be so close to houses & will cause issues with roofs & footings. Thank you

  • Thanks for your enquiry regarding a council-owned tree.

    In accordance with the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028, a qualified tree surveyor has assessed your request and concluded that there is no need to undertake tree works.

    We don't prune or remove a council-owned tree to remove or reduce blossom, tree sap, honeydew or remove fallen leaves and blossom from private land. Tree sap or honeydew are a seasonal problem. When we plant new trees, we try to choose those that are less likely to cause this problem. You can remove tree sap or honeydew from your car using warm soapy water. We regularly sweep leaves and blossom from our parks, roads, and footpaths or cycle paths that run alongside them.

    All council-owned trees are surveyed by a qualified surveyor for safety every one-to-five years, depending on how much the area surrounding them is used. We also carry out maintenance work if it's needed.

    For further information please read the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028
