Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360968.

This tree has now grown to completely cover the road and throughout the summer and now is dropping sap on our cars causing a mass of wasps and fly to collect on our vehicles making getting in and out dangerous also on windy days drops sticks and branches on our cars or us I'm disabled with a blue badge and need to park outside my bungalow this is now becoming a real issue and can even have an impact on driving in the rain imagine either washing your car every time you need it or when you get the slitest drop of rain being blinded by a sap covered window this needs atte6asap before becoming a danger

  • Thank you for your Highways report.
    We have now inspected the defect and no planned repair is necessary at this stage. Please be assured that we will continue to monitor and inspect the tree in line with our established service plan. Unfortunately sap drop from a tree is unavoidable without removing the tree entirely, which we wont do if the tree is healthy and causing no further issue. Will monitor the tree going forward as it may be possible to reduce its size but this will have minimal impact on sap drop.

    Thank you for reporting this matter,
    Central Bedfordshire Council Highways
