Back to all reports

There is a Sycamore Tree outside our house which has broken the pavement. My 82 year husband fell on Saturday due to this problem. I have also seen a couple of school children falling. My husband was very badly shaken.

I reported his problem a few years ago but nothing was done. The roots of these trees are causing deep cracks all along the road. We had to get help to pull the seedlings out of our garden before they rooted too deep. The roots have caused the pavement to rise quite considerably which is how my husband fell.
