Large dying Ash tree outside 1 Moreton Road
Reported via mobile in the Hedge/Tree Maintenance category anonymously at 12:12, Sunday 31 July 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3719541.
Ash tree is dying; it has ash die back as reported by independent tree surgeons, although you seem to dispute this finding. I have now had large sections of branch falling on my property and my vehicle. It is only a matter of time before someone gets injured by falling debris from this tree. You have been on notice if this problem since last year and you have failed to act. I have taken legal advice and you will be held to account and will be liable for death, injury and/or damage to property resulting from your failure to act in taking this tree down.
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.
