Dead tree

Reported in the Hedge/Tree Maintenance category by Cllr Craig Browne at 12:34, Wed 13 May 2020

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2114547.

There is a very large beech tree in the grass verge in front of No.16 Wilton Crescent. The tree has been in a deteriorating condition for some time and is now clearly dead. I am concerned about the tree falling in strong wind and causing damage to my own property (No.23 Wilton Crescent) or neighbouring properties.

  • The tree has been felled, but the contractor has not drilled out the stump, which they have left in the grass verge with a traffic cone placed on top of it. It isn't clear whether they are intending to return to complete the job; also the a-board advising of the footpath closure is still there.
