Half a tree broken off blocking path
Reported via mobile in the Fallen tree category anonymously at 21:05, Wed 1 December 2021
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3154340.
The tree is rotten and part has broken off and blocking path, was reported on 4th August as low hanging branch but no work has been carried and it is now fully broken. Work was approved in September but no further action has taken place. I believe a local Councillor has also reported the issue. I've had numerous people knocking on my door complaining but this is not my tree. It needs removing ASAP as it is blocking the path and there is a blind man that lives on the same street. The whole tree is rotten and parts are breaking regularly in the wind. The tree is on Pratt ave.
