Potentially dangerous tree branches!

Reported in the Trees category by Rose-Marie Smith at 23:16, Tue 14 August 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The large tree at the front of The Rowans (OX1 5DT) which overhangs the road has dead branches (possibly because of the amount of ivy attached to it?) and on 28th July damaged nearby electrical cables, causing a power cut of several hours to the adjacent houses. SSE had to carry out emergency repairs, including the removal of several dead branches. Please investigate for other potentially dangerous dead branches - if one falls it could cause serious injury or accident.
