Hi , I've been informed by my local council( Hounsow )that Tfl

Reported in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 14:07, Wed 8 July 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2191356.

Hi I've been informed by my local council (Hounslow ) that Tfl are responsible for the maintainance of tress along the Great West Road . I live in a small development with the back of dwellings facing the Great West Road (Harvard Hill - Cedars Road ) . The trees here are causing issues with: Large overgrown branches almost touching the buildings , large roots displacing paving and pathways ,large branches falling into gardens and the road when it's windy ,excessive leaves and debris on a daily basis in our back gardens and insect infestation.. It would be great if these tress could be trimmed back and maintained more regularly . Please could you help with this issue ASAP . Just to say that we appreciate the trees and the value they bring to the environment however it would be great to have some sunlight without the anxiety of these very large overhanging branches falling on us etc. I look forward to your prompt response .

  • Could you confirm the exact location because the postcode given and the address don't exactly match up and we'd like to ensure we have the correct address. Is the dwelling in Falcon Close?

I’d like to inform you that this is not the case and we have not seen , heard or noticed any difference with the trees ? Please could you check with your contractors about what is happening or has happened ?
