Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2263000.

It’s a lovely oak tree at the bottom of our garden but beyond our boundary so on council land next to walkway at Orton Wistow behind Brackenwood. The tree desperately needs it’s crown reducing for the health of the tree plus the lack of light into our house. There are also branches overhanging the conservatory which are too high for us to cut ourselves. Acorns are constantly dropping on the conservatory roof. We are concerned that it will crack. For health and safety we would request the overhanging branches removed and the crown trimmed.

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

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

    We don't prune or remove council-owned trees because they are considered too big or too tall unless it is deemed to be dangerous.

    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
