Overhanging large tree

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 16:28, Monday 5 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2842505.

The tree in the playpark overhangs our garden greatly. It also blocks daylight. When we moved in February we noticed huge branches from it which were laying in our garden. We were wondering if the council could do something about the larger hanging branches which encroach our garden, for example cut them? It's too big to do ourselves and wondered if anything could be done to prevent any damage to our garden, and also feel that it's a safety issue. Many thanks, Tina Robinson.

  • 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.
