Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2333843.

Member of the public has called to report that the tree at the back of the property is largely overgrown and there is a concern if the tree falls then it will hit the property. Branches are overhanging into the property which the member of the public is willing to cut back but would like the tree reducing as much as possible to prevent this happen in the future and have a more permanent solution.

  • 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

    I trust this answers your enquiry, however, should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Aragon Direct Services.

    State changed to: No further action
