Overgrown tree

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:24, Thursday 17 February 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3318849.

There is a large tree by bus shelter at crossroads that is on/ by footpath. It was seriously swaying in high winds over last few days. It does not appeared to have been pollarded or maintained recently. I fell it needs looking at, sorry not photos but it is at least three storeys high.

  • There are lots of small branches that have fallen off of this beech tree all over the footpath (the area is not lit at night so they are a trip hazard). I have spent some time piling them up by the bus shelter today but I have no room in my recycling bin to discard of them.

  • Thank you for your further comments. A tree report was carried out and the recommendations for the tree works have now been completed. The tree referred to near the bus stop is in good health and doesn’t show any signs of disease or fungi. It was recommended to crown lift over the footway. Other works were also carried out on highway trees in the vicinity. No further works are planned on this tree. We hope this information has clarified matters.
