Dying or diseased / problematic tree
Reported via mobile in the Tree is dead or dying category anonymously at 10:10, Wed 16 June 2021
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2795524.
The tree has hardly any leaves, and hasn't looked healthy for a number of years now. There are old dry branches overhanging properties which have fallen in moderate winds. Pigeons are attracted to the bare branches and proceed to cover vehicles below with excrement. The tree is an eye sore, and only causes a mess. I fear that one of the old branches could cause injury or damage to a persons or property. There were 2 other trees nearby which have been removed in recent times due to disease and I think this one has been overlooked. There are 2 other same varient trees at the other end of the road and they are both full of foliage and appear to be healthy.
