Approx 25 meter high tree

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 19:40, Tuesday 7 September 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2986276.

Hundreds of birds perch and nest in this extremely high overgrown tree, which has got out of control. The high number of birds leave the tree and fly over our House. The birds mess all over our garden, driveway and on the cars. This is a problem as we have grandchildren that play outside and are continuously standing and walking threw it. When they fall over as part of the game, their clothes are covered in the mess. I feel this is a health and safety issue.

  • 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.
