Overgrown Forest Pines

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:53, Fri 26 May 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4599532.

Outside our house there are two very tall, getting on for 70-80feet tall if not higher, forest pines they have never had any maintenance work done to them. during moderate winds they sway during high winds we are always concerned that they may come down, one leans on the other, if they were to come down or even if a beach was to fall the likely hood is they would land on the house. as it is we have had to replace two windscreens through dropping pine cones. the cones and pine needles are a menace with us having to have our gutters cleared 3/4 times a year, the garden is constantly full of needles and cones which makes cutting the lawn an hour long job that should take no more than 10 minutes. the trees had no business being planted in a town as they belong in woodland. i am hoping someone can at the very least come and have a look at them.

  • The Ivy on the tree mentioned was dead and has fallen off the tree this weekend (18th / 19th November) and fell on the public footpath. I have move this dead ivy to the grass area below the tree however this needs to be disposed of. The footpath in this area is used by children walking to Oundle Primary School as the school entrance is just across Glapthorn Road from where this tree and pile of dead ivy is situated. Removal of this dead ivy needs prompt attention.
