Tree roots disturbing tarmac

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 19:31, Monday 15 November 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Over the past six months the tree roots have disturbed the tarmac road causing it to rise up and crack in places. This is a large ash tree close to a main road and so thought it warranted some attention given the threat of ash die back, the movement of the roots and its proximity to the Aylesbury Road.

  • I have visited site and assessed the tree described in the enquiry. The tree is present on land not deemed to be part of the publicly maintained highway by OCC in our capacity as local highway authority. The tree is present on land maintainable by an adjacent landowner and not by the County Council. You can access the land registry at: search-property-information-land-registry to find details of the adjacent landowner to pursue your enquiry.
    Many thanks for your enquiry.
