Very old, very tall tree too close to our property.

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 18:11, Wed 20 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3074866.

I am very worried about a 50 year old, 50 ft high silver birch tree, 2-3 metres from our property. It is on the steeply sloping Kinber Close which adjoins our property. It looks like it has started leaning and would smash our porch/fence/wall if it is blown down. Our dwarf wall has also started to lean over due to its roots? Please could you inspect asap. There are also another 5 trees on this hill equally old.

  • These trees are routinely inspected every 3-4 years, were last inspected in November 2020 and found to be stable. An inspector will check them to see if their condition has changed in the last 12 months.
