Very large tree on highway side of fence
Reported in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 15:08, Tuesday 30 June 2020
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2179616.
Large tree on highway side of fence is overhanging mobile home and lower branch has being rubbing on the roof, roots are also causing fence to move. I am afraid that there may be an issue with this tree and it will come down or a large branch may damage this mobile home (36, Fengate Park). It also creates a high level of leaf fall all around the plot.
