Tree is damaged problem

Reported via Open311 in the Tree is damaged category by Gloucestershire County Council at 15:50, Monday 26 February 2024

FixMyStreet ref: 5686504.

RE: Hazardous and Still Standing Heavy Timber GCC Property Owned Dead Ash Tree.

Dear GCC Customer Services,

As a nearby resident, for some time now, I have been aware of a failing mature treeā€¦that has now died, at a hundred years old maybe? May I request, that instructions be given, for competent contractors to attend, and estimate the works extent, with heavy timber removal from the site. Removing the timber to waste I suggest, will be a significant budget cost, but the timing is I suggest, now, a Health and Safety Risk Assessment based imperative.

May I suggest, that liaison for safety works takes place between GCC Property Services, and Gloucestershire Highways.

If you require to carry out a site visit, please feel free to contact me accordingly.
