I have high lighted this problem in the past but the fallen branches are becoming larger each year. I noticed last year that there was less foliage on the tree and a lot of the larger branches appear to be dead. I am really concerned about the situation now that the new school is opened and very young children play under this tree on their journey to and from school. I would not like to hear their screams if any branch did fall on any of them after notifying you of my concerns. These families do not know that gotten branches are prone to fall from the tree as they have never taken this route before as they take the new slip path to school. I know trees are good for the environment but not at the cost of potential injury to young children Yours gratefully
