Branch was removed with first report (ref: 3688342), but tree was not chopped and removed. Photos show large split/crack in trunk and bark falling off, thereby diseased, (previous branches falling off), so is PRIORITY 2 of ‘TREE MANAGEMENT POLICY’ and 2nd photo shows large branch overhanging public footpath. Please chop down tree.
