Overhanging leaning trees

Reported via desktop in the Emergency - Leaning tree category anonymously at 11:06, Tuesday 19 January 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2487707.

During a recent estate inspection that we undertook at Harebell Close, Peterborough PE1 3UN, it was noted that there were a couple of trees on council owned land that were precariously overhanging, one in particular, in the drying area at the rear of number 88 is almost falling down. The other is overhanging and looks as if at some point it could fall on to the parking area at the front of number 88.

It would be greatly appreciated if Peterborough City Council could rectify this situation as soon as possible. I have attached photos of the trees for your perusal.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or queries.
