Behind 18 Bradshaws close in the alley way

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 17:49, Sunday 18 July 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 359436.

Once again I m reporting the issue of self set trees I am writing in relation to concerns we have about a potential threat to health and safety posed by the overgrown trees in the alley opposite ours and our neighbours properties.

In general the foliage has not been maintained as it has in the past and we now have a situation of numerous selt set trees growing that ultimately will be too large and too close to the properties.

However the tree that I am concerned about are self set Ash in the alley itself directly opposite out property.

I am particularly concerned about the tree as it is leaning towards our gardens and because there is already a fully grown Ash tree just a few metres away, that is overhanging numerous gardens, which has already caused issues in the past due to branches falling into gardens and the alley itself. Our neighbours immediately next to us as well as on the other side of the alley way wish to the selected trees removed before they start to damage properties due to their size and their roots and become a larger issue for the council.
