Trees grow to big to manage

Reported via iOS in the Retaining Wall category anonymously at 19:09, Thu 24 September 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Bristol Council say private tenants should fix the wall themselves. They could have worked with them to remove the tree and fix the wall. They have access to specialist Tree surgeons and brick layers . Once completed charge or put against the properties so once sold BCC get back their money . That way the problem gets resolved quickly and doesn’t add to the poor over condition of the estate .

  • Huge Trees damage walls homes and foundations on Fox Road and some areas on the estate. Residence fear the trees will continue to grow and cause damage.

    Bristol City Council Tree Management Team failed 40 years ago to maintain the trees while the where young as there information has clearly stated .

    Since the trees have been planted many people have bought their homes and the council now dump their responsibility on to them. This is very unfair and sly.

    Residence want a positive response and outcome for all concerned.

  • Clearly Bristol City planted hundreds of trees in this location and failed to look after them once planted . Why they drag their feet to put right their historical responsibility is so neglectful and a disgrace. Now these massive trees are made to be the responsibility of residence which is out of order and unfair they have reneged on their promise to maintain them form young had they did so they would not have been so large. Web need them to be maintained and some chopped down. Their is evidence that this is a Risk to properties , boundary walls and foundations on Fox Road and the whole estate .

    Thank you
