Good afternoon

I live at 5 Riby Road Caistor and we have council trees on the verge just outside our property which are rotten and dead (see attached photos) that require cutting down.

Living at the top of the hill we are prone to strong winds up here and the danger is that branches and part of the trees could blow down causing damage to my fence or worse still hit someone as they walk past. Smaller rotten branches are already breaking off and landing on my lawn

There is also a tree that has branches growing through the telephone cable which comes from the post at the top of the drive to both my and my neighbours house.

Could you please give me a call to discuss a suitable time for someone to come and have a look at them and also discuss this with me. My number is 0771 5522160

Kind Regards

Mr Michael Hunter
