  • Tree has fallen on to public footpath and our garden. I have tried to clear the debris with some branch cutters but the trunk is too thick. I have already raised the issue with these trees in the past. The large tree next to the fallen one is dead and large branches fall on to our garden and the public footpath on a regular basis. A tree surgeon visited the site last year and thought it was ash dieback and had concerns about the both the tree and large dead branches. It is only a matter of time before someone is hurt or our property damaged. Could someone please visit the site to assess the situation.
