Entrance to the garages behind 35 Leas Drive and before 37 Leas Drive

Reported via desktop in the Dead/diseased tree category anonymously at 14:14, Friday 1 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5654008.

Yesterday one of the branches of this ash tree collapsed under it's own weight. I suspect this tree may have ash dieback and need to be removed before it becomes dangerous.

Updates

  • A Highway Officer will carry out an initial assessment of the tree, emergency issues will be corrected or made safe at the time of the inspection, if reasonably practicable to do so. In this context, making safe may constitute displaying warning notices, coning‐off or fencing‐off to protect the public from the tree or other suitable action.

    If the inspection team cannot make safe the defect at the time of inspection, then they will instigate the relevant emergency call procedures to ensure appropriate resources are mobilised to make the tree safe. Highway Officers are not qualified as tree experts and in some cases they may need to arrange for a tree surgeon to visit the site and carry out a survey on the tree which can take up to 12 weeks.

    There may also be occasions when the issue reported will be classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy , in these cases no action will be taken.
