Broken branch

Reported via mobile in the Other tree issue category anonymously at 11:40, Monday 25 September 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5028499.

A large branch (40feet) has snapped off from a tree in Desborough Rec, located on the river bank near the children's play area. The branch has fallen onto the electricity substation/children's nursery buildings. It is also putting strain on at least one phone line. The main girth of the branch and smaller branches are in the stream and will probably restrict the water flow before long.
