Trees look like they are dying

Reported via desktop in the Tree is dead or dying category anonymously at 10:29, Thursday 3 June 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2765553.

There are 6 trees in front of my house (99 Clayton), on the green between me and Braybrook School. Not sure of species, plane maybe, leaf similar to maple or sycamore. All six trees are dropping a lot of leaves. I know this happens when it's very windy, but it hasn't been very windy and the new, soft leaves are falling. It has been going on for a couple of weeks as far as I know. It looks like autumn along the grass and footpaths with all the fallen leaves. I am so worried they may have a virus or similar that is killing them and I hope you can come and look and determine what is wrong. If you could then let me know, I would be grateful. Thank you.
