Overhanging dead/dying branch of horse chestnut

Reported via Android in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 15:40, Wed 29 June 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3633904.

There is a huge horse chestnut tree growing on the eastern (cliff) side of the path from Mount Road to Mount Beacon. It has been blighted (brown curling leaves) and may be almost dead. One of its branches looks quite dead and poses a danger to anyone walking up the path.

  • Hi, that tree has a big infestation of Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner, just like most other Horse Chestnut trees around. There’s nothing to be done about it: the moth is now all over the place and isn’t going away. It won’t kill the tree, just slowly weaken it over many years (as the leaves fall earlier, therefore reducing the tree’s ability to feed from the sunlight). Some Horse Chestnuts seem less affected by it than others, luckily.
