Dead/dying ash tree breaking up over road and neighbouring property

Reported via desktop in the Dead/diseased tree category by Cllr Carl Jackson at 16:09, Fri 17 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5224721.

On the verge opposite the entrance to Comely Bank there is a dead/dying ash tree which is marked with a green spray.

Since the last time I reported this, the tree has started to lean further over the road and the Comely Bank property. The tree is also breaking up and dropping parts of its branches on Wilton Lane.

I am concerned that the tree could fall or drop large sections of its branches onto the road or onto Comely Bank.
