Request to remove tree

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 22:04, Thursday 13 June 2024

Sent to Birmingham City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6105837.

I am writing to request the removal or trimming of a tree located directly in front of my house at 19 Beales Street. No action was taken till now, even after reporting the incident several times to the housing officer. The tree has become a significant inconvenience for the following reasons:

Bird Droppings: Birds frequently perch on the tree, resulting in an excessive amount of droppings on my property. This has become a daily nuisance, creating a mess on my windows, doors, and the front area of my house.

Health and Hygiene: The accumulation of bird droppings poses a health hazard, especially when it lands on surfaces that are regularly touched. The droppings also contribute to an unpleasant smell and unsanitary conditions.

Safety Concerns: The bird droppings are not only falling on my property but also on individuals walking past or underneath the tree, posing a potential slip hazard and causing discomfort.

Given these issues, I kindly request that the tree be either trimmed or removed entirely to alleviate these problems. I understand the importance of trees to our environment and community, but the current situation is unsustainable and adversely affecting my quality of life.

Thank you for considering my request.
