Potentially dangerous tree

Reported in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 11:59, Thu 23 July 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2213265.

This tree is top heavy and has a loud creak when it is windy. It is public right of way and I have heard several pedestrians express concern over the tree's safety. Also, the lane itself gets overgrown and the hedge was once trimmed by the council.

  • A tree has fallen, held in place by extensive brambles. The ROW is currently being used by St John’s School as a temporary Infants Entrance. It was leaning into the lane, so I spent last evening and today taking it down and clearing the risk to queuing for school. This lane and the hedgerow, has been maintained by the local authority until improved security fencing was installed. Since then the hedgerow has be abandoned it is causing problems. Hope you be able to reduce this hedgerow in volume and height. Thank-you in anticipation. John Kiely
