Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5393075.

The trunk of the tree is split vertically and during the recent high winds, it was swaying alarmingly towards both my and my neighbours rear garden fence, the party fence and my garden shed. We are very concerned that unless it is removed, it is going to damage our property at some future date.

All general tree maintenance work requests that are causing no risk of harm to people or property will be dealt with as resources allow.

    We are unable to provide a time frame for inspections and works relating to low priority requests. For more information follow Highways/ Report-a-tree-issue.aspx.

  • Several more storm warnings since my first report, I presume the council are going to wait until the tree falls and damages my property or that of my neighbour whereupon we will make a claim for damages from the council. It would be so much cheaper to pre-empt the problem by removing the tree.
