There is a tree in the garden of this property that has a large, rotten branch overhanging the pavement. When it is windy chunks of it blow off onto the pavement. This morning there was a large amount on the pavement and I caught my leg on it trying to get by. I moved some of it back into the garden. I’m concerned that a huge piece could get blown loose whilst someone is walking by and cause injury.
