Elder tree on public footpath and private fence
Reported via mobile in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 19:16, Tue 8 June 2021
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2778022.
There is an elder tree growing on the public footpath and leaning on our private fence. The tree has been there a number of years and I reported it in 2019 but no works were done. The tree is on the path to the side and rear of 5 Langford road, outside the garage of 7 Barry Walk. The tree needs cutting down and removing. We are reluctant to do it ourselves as it is not our property, but it is getting very tall and potentially damaging or fence underneath it. Many thanks

A qualified tree surveyor has assessed your request and following a site visit has recommended works.

Continued management of all our trees forms an integral part of this strategy. 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. Where inspection identifies maintenance work it is scheduled in accordingly with safety issues forming the highest priority.
