Over hanging branches.

Good afternoon and to whom it may concern,


108 Wantage Rd Didcot Oxon OX11 0AJ

Opposite my property is a large tree on a green area, numerous trees have recently been removed to allow for the cycle path to be put in place but not the one which hangs over people properties!

Although I have reported this tree previously, nothing has been rectified and it remains dangerous, not only humans but also to vehicles.

During the winds the large branches creek and it wont be long before one falls, and the damage to a person could be catastrophic.

One particular branch is that long actually hangs over my personnel drive way which will cause massive damage to my property or family when it falls.

Another concern is the enormous amount of leaves, which become very slippery when wet, there are a lot of elderly residents who reside on the terrace so this is another safety concern.

I look forward to hearing from you, Mob: 07899911662

  • I have visited site and inspected the tree. The tree appears to be in a reasonable condition on inspection with few defects observed, on this occasion no statutory works are appropriate on the tree as described in the enquiry. Should you notice a significant decline in the tree’s overall health, please feel free to get back in touch with us.
    Many thanks for your enquiry
