Protected Lime trees line the street. In higher winds and autumn/ winter they are hazardous when literally branches fall on to the road. My 10 year old daughter was hit on the head by a branch in last 6 months, luckily falling thinner end to her head. All neighbours and I want is for trees to be lopped and managed, enabling street lamps to function correctly and lower risk of a full tree falling or really large branches falling on houses, cars or worse people. Street is littered with tree debris and pavements are lifted due to size of trees now, most higher than houses down street. This is now second time I’ve felt I need to bring up incident with daughter to demonstrate the trees have been left growing unmanaged for way too long now. Thank you.
