Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3439902.
There is a flowering cherry tree outside 2 Alison Drive, Macclesfield, that it is leaning across the pavement. You can no longer get past it except by going into the road or ducking under it. This tree is rooted in the pavement, it is not on private property, it is the Council's responsibility to remove it. Attached photographs show the situation.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.

We take action if a tree is dead, diseased or dying, damaging property, or blocking safety signs or lamp columns. The tree at this location does not fall into any of these categories and so we will not be taking any action at this time. We will continue to monitor this location through our routine inspections and will take action in future if necessary. If you would like to know more about how we manage hedges and trees, you can find information here: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ roadside-trees-and-hedges.aspx
