Tree doesn’t look healthy

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3781711.
Outside the back of 110/111 stumpacre there is an enormous tree that doesn’t look very healthy on the stump. In the past large branches have fallen from it and luckily not landed on property or god forbid a person. It was said the tree was assessed in 2020 however I believe the wrong tree was assessed. I saw a man assessing a tree out the front around this time not at the back? This tree hasn’t been cut in the last 8years even tho it’s on council land.

A qualified tree surveyor has assessed your request and following a site visit has recommended works.

Continued management of all our trees forms an integral part of this strategy.
