From 247 up to 265 Dysart Road

Reported via mobile in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 22:12, Thursday 18 May 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 459608.

The trees are overgrown, in the winter the branches have been known to fall onto parked car in drive . Overhanging outside 265 need to bend down when walking on the pavement . Bottom of trees grow out into road causing obstruction when pulling out of driveways. Cars go faster than 30 miles an hour making the obstruction dangerous. The trees further down the road were all pruned last year. Are there any plans to prune further up where the problem is ?

  • This tree is opposite 230 dysart road and is now affecting our solar panel production. Other trees on that side of the road only have one tree per area between drives - on this one there are two. Other trees have been trimmed recently but don't think this one has been touched for two or three years now

  • Well the pruning has been done and company gone. They have only lightly pruned the lower parts of the trees - nowhere near as heavy a prune as has been done elsewhere on the road. They have not touched the heavier branches or reduced the crown height at all which I think was needed. I did contact you myself earlier this month and pointed out that since I had solar panels fitted the tree shading from the trees opposite me at 230 Dysart Road has increased and is affecting the full potential of the panels.
