  • As previous reported these trees are still in the same condition , I think sending two people , a stepladder and a pair of shears to tackle this issue is only a token gesture. I feel that the whole wooded area facing the private property’s on Ironmould Lane are in need of attention from a specialist, there are several trees that are overhanging, causing issues for vehicles traveling to and from the trading estate and also trees on angles that would clash with the houses if they were blown down during any storms
