Overgrown trees

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 12:34, Friday 17 June 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3604087.

Having to report again due to the wrong place being inspected and saying there were no trees in the area. This is at the back of the row of houses in Abbotsbury 46-51.

The trees have overgrown, branching across the boundary of my property, in Orton Malborne PE2 5PS. This is also an issue for the whole row of houses, as you can see from photos they are branching over all houses boundaries. Behind the fence is also a lot of ivy that has begun eating it’s way through it, causing irreversible damage which is going to cost us to get it replaced. The sun is blocked and so our grass is patchy due to half of it not getting any sunlight. The issue has been ongoing since moving into the property in November.

  • 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.

    State changed to: No further action
