Reported via mobile in the Overhanging Trees category anonymously at 20:46, Thursday 16 June 2022
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3602702.
This tree has been reported numerous times by myself and my neighbour as it hangs over our private owed gardens. Constantly sheds every year coursing damage and kills plants and grass with its debris. There are now numerous dead branches that are more noticeable now the greenery has returned and they hang over out private land and will course damage if they drop. I have dogs. And this is now a hazard. It appears the tree is slowly dying one side as it is shaded by the property. I would appreciate this being looked at and dealt with asap before damage is coursed
