The trees are so overgrown that Lorries are clipping the branches and also the trees are so overgrown they are starting to cover the street light

  • Nothing has has been done at this time! The trees are totally overgrown and if a lorry hits the branches and hits a pedestrian it will cause a injury! I never put the report in for the signs at the bottom of Falcons Way! But I can only assume its a forgotten street. Thanks for your help hope to see some improvements soon.

    Kind regards

  • Fix My Street Ref: 14092032 To whom it may concern I have recently had need to report over grown conifers in Falcons Way, Copthorne Shrewsbury SY3 8ZG opposite numbers 76,77,78 and 79. The trees were overgrown and with branches hanging over the road with lorries clipping them, they also obscured the street light. The work to cut back the trees started on Friday 4th November 22 and appears to have been completed Monday 7th November. I am now emailing due to my concerns of the quality of work completed and more importantly the dangerous condition the trees have now been left in, I also believe the work has not been completed. The contractors decided to use a tractor with a hedge cutter to cut back the conifers causing the branches to split rather than cut leaving the tree branches with broken sticks now falling onto the pavement with some branches at least a couple of feet long ready to fall, which could cause injury to pedestrians or damage to cars. One branch 5 feet in length and around 12 feet up is now ready to fall. I have added a photograph. The work should have been done with a cherry picker and small chainsaw. The top of the trees have only been partly done for some reason leaving long braches above the cut line at the top, they still obscure the street lighting and hang over the road, an attempt has been made to cut around the street light but they have left braches around 6 feet long either side of the light still blocking the light. The pavement is now completely covered with fallen branches and sticks. The path is used by elderly residents and push chairs and would be unusable at the moment.

    If this work has been sub contracted I would suggest checking the work prior to making payment and retuning to finish the work and make the trees safe for members of the public. I understand you are very busy however I feel if the work is not complete/made safe I will contact my local councillor as I feel residents of the street have been let down by the work completed. I have taken pictures of the trees and I think you will agree the work is shockingly bad. I hope to hear from you soon
