Green Close, Paulton - large, overhanging trees

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category by Bath and North East Somerset Council at 16:47, Wednesday 3 March 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2584945.

I have a public pathway running alongside my property with three trees which have become very large and now taller than surrounding houses and are in need of approx 6 to 10 ft pruning of the top to prevent damage to property or public safety, is this something the council could help with.

  • We have looked into this issue and found it is not the council's responsibility, the council is only responsible for the footway surface not the verges adjacent. Please let the landowner responsible know instead. The report is now closed, further comments may not be monitored.
