Large dead branches overhanging lawn on Widcombe Cresent

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 16:59, Fri 30 July 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2902935.

This tree has several very large dead branches that overhang the lawn where residents and neighbours of Widcombe Crescent relax and play. It grows on the Widcome Hill side of the lawn. The tree is also considerably taller than Widcombe Cresent. When It falls over, it could take out the top floors of several houses. It should be pruned down to two thirds of current height and dangerous dead branches should be removed as soon as the nesting season is over.
