Large branch & several small ones have fallen into garden of no 50 from trees adjacent to Nos 48 & 50 Whitewells Road. The larger branch would have no doubt killed any person it had fallen on. This is a recurring problem that indicates trees need inspecting. Debris has been cleared from public footpath & garden family of occupant.

  • Land adjacent to 50 Whitewells owned by Curo. Trees on council land at Whitewells were routinely inspected in August and no external defects identified that could make the trees vulnerable to limb failure. Trees checked today and not found to be in an unsafe condition or any major limb failure present.
