The tree is cracking the pavement and the wall on our boundary.

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 12:26, Monday 19 April 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 394918.

The tree outside our house had grown dramatically and has the telephone wires tangled through the branches. The roots are cracking the pavement and our boundary wall. We would like a new drive but am concerned that the roots will damage that too.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because our Tree Officer has visited the site and provided the following comments: I got to North Parade on 25/5/21, the tree outside 98/100 is a purple crab apple, 6m tall, 30cm diameter, good condition, overhanging the front garden by 2m to 2m from the houses, recently pruned from Highway, no action justified at present. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
