Overgrown trees

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 14:51, Thursday 14 September 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4994379.

Silver Birch trees are overgrown and hanging over our garden. Please see picture of one in particular that is considerably leaning over. Please trim/inspect as I believe this is way overdue. Please also see picture of tree also behind Anson Close that is also overdue and now a considerable size.

  • These trees are at the bottom of my garden too. The silver birch are overhanging my garden and need to be looked at. All the trees need to be managed. The larger tree to the side has caused problems with blocked gutters

  • The trees at this location are inspected every 3-4 years and were last inspected in 2021 so are due to be routinely inspected next in 2024. Essential works are prioritised for public safety reasons and no essential works were identified during the last inspection. A note will be made on the trees records of the request for pruning.
