On Mere Lane about 100 yards from the top of the road

Reported via mobile in the Hedge/Tree Maintenance category anonymously at 19:04, Thu 25 May 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4597319.

One of the properties in Jacobs Way have let their Poplar trees grow to a height that is dangerous. You can see from the photos that they are obstructing telephone and powerlines. I have attempted to speak to the owner, but he says it’s somebody else’s problem when he sells the property which hasn’t happened for over a year. The trees are dangerous, because if they were ever to fall over in high winds, it will cause substantial damage to other properties and vehicles due to the size. Because this size they are going to be more prone to uprooting in high winds than if they were considerably reduced in size. The trees are in excess of 100 feet high and probably need reducing by at least 60%. They also give off an antisocial cotton which covers the whole village again, because of the height of the trees. It catches any wind and transports it over the whole village. The whole village has got to keep their windows closed often in hot weather for two weeks in June when it becomes a big problem.
