Reported in the Dying or diseased tree category anonymously at 16:10, Sun 15 March 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 369856.

Previous ref number 368638 I have had a reply from you stating that the hole has been refilled, unfortunately this is not correct as per my attached photo. I am disappointed that you have been given incorrect information which forwarded to me. I have tried to update original reference number 368638. Please contact me to discuss or email your direct phone number Regards John Pettit

Our system automatically updated you based on this completed works order status. We are sorry for the confusion caused with this report. Thank you for taking action where you were not required to do so, that should not have been the case.
