  • There are no leaves at all this year (June 2021) and many smaller branches have been regularly falling from the tree and now the thick bark is just peeling/dropping off. It is clear that the tree is totally dead even to a non-expert like me. This is a big tree with several very heavy branches and towers over 4 or 5 houses in Godfrey Close & St Amands and is also a risk to anyone walking in Godfrey Close. Please do an inspection as soon as possible.
