The trees between Ellindon/Adderley have grown too large and are blocking light for no’s 23/24/26 Ellindon, when fully leaved the trees block sunlight and are a lot taller than the houses themselves, during strong winds we are finding broken branches very close to the houses and would either like alternate trees taken down or all of them to be cut down to a suitable level please. The tree roots have ruined the pathways in that area too and make it difficult for some to use the paths.

  • 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.
