Overhanging trees and hedges. Digby Road

Reported in the Hedges / Trees on road or verge category by David Doolan at 12:56, Wed 19 September 2018

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 4 minutes later

Digby Road , Coleshill. Poplar tree branches now overhanging the road and need attention as soon as possible. The trees themselves are probably over 100 ft tall and also appear to require some attention. The hedges along Digby Road are badly overgrown and need proper maintenance. Many branches are now protruding well into the road. This problem was reported some weeks ago but there has not been any evidence of action being taken.

  • No it's still in a mess. Just less leaves now. There is also a large limb that has broken off resting on lower limbs. This could be serious if it falls to the ground.

  • The large broken off limb was taken down and left on the ground. Unfortunately the tangled mess and broken fence still remains. Two workmen did visit the site. their vehicle hit the overhanging branches on arrival. They blew some debris out of the gutter and departed hitting the overhanging branches as they did so. Someone did take photographs on the 10th March.

  • After more telephone calls to WCC they eventually sent two workmen out to do a small tidy up job. The main problem still exists with both trees and fencing. They said they do not receive these reports!

  • The problem contiues to exist. The hedgerow now protruding well into the road and is repeadley hit by passing vehicles. It will only get worse unless some action is taken by people who know what they are doing.

  • With no action being taken my neighbours were left with no option but to remove some of the overhanging branches as they were becoming potentially dangerous. This was reported to WCC who have forwarded it on to their forestry/tree department.
