Trees dead or dying

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2572087.

Could be a problem in high winds, we worry about them blowing over, particularly as small children play in the trees. Over the past year several large branches have broken off and fallen in high winds which has been dangerous.

Also to note - these are not proper ‘trees’, but hawthorn shrubs that have been left to grow out of control to a large size.

  • Aragon manage the City Council's tree stock in line with the formally adopted Trees and Woodlands Strategy.

    In line with the above, all trees are inspected every 3 years and at that point if there is arboricultural justification then works are instructed.

    These trees have faults, but they are considered to be proportional to their age and as yet, there is no justification at this time to remove them.
    We will however, continue to monitor them.

    State changed to: No further action
