'There are two aged Oak trees that have a very heavy growth of Ivy which is contributing to the death of the tree. The one nearest to Fairholme Road has several dead branches and every time we have a storm large pieces of dead tree are blown down on to the road and path below. I am very concerned for the safely of the public and the damage that may occur to the public transport (scooter, bike, bus, car etc) Surely it would be a good idea to cut the Ivy at the base and prevent loss of the trees and prevent danger.ra t

  • The lovely Oak Trees are being killed by the Ivy which is growing vigorously from their base. Branches are dying and in stormy weather and heavy rain fall to the ground and are highly dangerous to the pedestrians including children walking to and from school, plus vehicles beneath.

  • I have not heard from the Highways Dept. and there is no evidence of any improvement of the condition of the trees.

  • No one has been in contact with me and I cannot see any change in the trees. The heavy Ivy still remains and the dead wood on the trees is still evident.

  • I think this is really not good enough that the land-owner has not been approached by the Council or Highways department to encourage them to maintain the trees which are on their land. These are beautiful aged Oak trees and we need our ancient trees for absorption of CO2 and Historically. If they are not maintained we will loose them. It is four months since I first approached you please can I have some response. Thank you
