Over grown Tree

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 19:47, Mon 17 May 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2732354.

This tree is overgrown and needs attention. The tree over hangs my wall and the tree is releasing “dirt” as you can see from the photographs. I am having to clean my car daily and sweep my drive way daily. This is a big problem and time consuming to clean daily.

Please can you address this issue.

Cusomer called 24/06/2021 to add info -
He said that the tree is now leaking liquid (sap?) and it falling all over the floor and on the car. He is worried about the paint that is on the car.

  • 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.
