4602276 2). 4602276 (and previously: 968031 and 1019789390) The tree outside my house is enormous, and hasn't been cut back since we have been living here (except on the bus side occasionally). It sways about dangerously in the wind and bits are constantly falling off it. The leaves are constantly blocking up the drains in Autumn and it overhangs my garden significantly, causing loss of light. I have seen lots of trees on the A21 being cut well back, PLEASE will you deal drastically with this one.
Thank you for your report. This will now be investigated by our team, where possible and appropriate action will be taken. We will still try to update on the progress within 10 days, however in the current circumstances it may not be possible to do so while we focus on keeping our roads safe for critical workers as they to continue to support London

25.10.2020 tree outside 248 Hastings Road BR2 8QP. 28 days has passed since I last wrote to you about this dangerous tree, and nothing has been done. Last night a 10ft branch fell off onto my wall and the pavement. It was not particularly windy last night, and the branch looks fairly rotten, there are thousands more up there just like it waiting to fall either on my property or the head of some unsuspecting passer-by. Please will you deal with the tree and pollard it to make it safe. Judy Eade email@example.com.
