Large tree with the verge that is overhanging on the road

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 21:19, Tuesday 6 July 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

A representative of ATM came to Gore Tree Farm to discuss about the planned tree removals taking place near to the address as a part of the works for Highways England. It was discussed with them on site that there was a large Populus tree that overhangs both the road and the property with some branches appearing weak and having previously fallen into the nearby ditch. It was agreed that the tree imposes a risk both to the road users and to the property, stating that they would be able to resolve the issue while undertaking the works on the night closure arranged for the 07/07/2021, however needing prior approval from Highways England.

Please can this be addressed as a matter of urgency, as it imposes a serious risk to life for road users and to the residents.
