Further Old Gate opposite Percheron Lodge - large cut tree branch, potential for falling onto carriageway

Reported via desktop in the Fallen tree or branch category anonymously at 09:12, Thu 20 April 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 456327.

A large tree branch appears to have been cut from a large tree but not cleared away. It has moved in recent winds and I feel it is a danger to motorists and pedestrians. It is likely to be extremely heavy and I fear it would kill someone should it fall while they are passing.

  • I have walked down to the reported site and the issue still remains. It is a large cut branch that appears to be trapped in the tree. The attached photos show it clearly. If the opinion of the Council is that this hanging branch doesn’t pose a risk then please could that be stated, as “nothing was found” doesn’t really close this issue satisfactorily and I remain concerned over the risk of injury to passers by. Thank you.

  • The branch that the Council Workers were unable to find was blown down onto the carriageway by recent string winds and fortunately moved to a safe place by a resident before anyone could run into it.

    State changed to: Fixed
