Back to all reports

A tree has snapped behind our house. I have been reporting this since 11.8.19 but nothing has been done. I

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 16:49, Fri 25 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 1 minute later. ref: 1819595.

I have been reporting this since August. I keep getting batted back and forth. I have included the last emails that I have been sent. I work full time so it is difficult to keep chasing this. The trees that you can see back straight on to the A43 and I have a child and a dog. If this falls and/or brings my fence down it could put either of them in danger. I have tried calling the numbers again on the emails, to no avail. Please resolve this.. Furthermore, the trees to the right of this broken one are extremely high, and I worry that the same might happen to them. I tried to get someone (I was willing to pay) to take the tops off these, but they would not, due to the proximity of the road. I think it would be advisable to lower these as the broken one has clearly taken the brunt of the weather and now the next one will take that same brunt, probably to the same end and I will be having the same conversation in a few months, and i'd rather not.
