A422 highway tree planting, adjacent to 55 Dickens Drive at rear of property. Dead tree alongside our fence perimeter.Tree surgeon told us tree was dead. Large branch has now fallen onto our property. We have trimmed what we can reach for safety. To avoid any further potential damage or insurance claims to the highways or council agencies, the tree surgeon advised the tree should be cut down. At the very least, we would like this heavy branch removed and any other weak branches cut back. Thankyou
