Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 375252.

Another branch has fallen from this tree. It is much larger than the previous incident 4 years ago. It is blocking the footpath and is in an area where parents park and wait for pupils from Walton Academy opposite. In the opposite direction is the place where I park my car which could have been severely damaged. The branch needs to be urgently removed and the tree is decaying and dangerous and needs the be felled

  • Please provide an update on when you plan to tell this rotten tree. Neighbours and passers by are concerned about its condition and safety. The tree is adjacent to the drop off and collect point for pupils at Walton Academy and both the branches that fell off would have landed in the area where people wait and cars park. I cannot park my car where I usually do on my own drive bacause of concerns over the trees stability. Your workmen left cones behind so I can only assume they expected to return. Please attend to this issue as quickly as possible before the school restarts and the lane becomes busy.

  • An inspector examined the tree last week and was going to recommend that it be felled. When will this happen. I am still not parking my car underneath it's branches so I'm unable to use part of my drive
