Trees dying due to ivy

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

Two large, mature trees that are growing on the bank have been completely suffocated by ivy. The trees are now starting to show signs of dying and root instability will cause them to fall forwards on to the road. If either tree falls it will cause tens of thousands of pounds to parked cars, and to the front of my property. It could also cause serious injury if anyone is walk Now this has been reported I'm hoping that will be dealt with urgently as it could be a very costly issue for the council if the trees fall. The ivy needs to be cut through the root to allow it to die and allow the trees to breath again

  • We now have more concerns after talking to neighbours about the safety of their cars parked on the road. We have also measured and calculated that if the trees are to fall then they will hit our house causing extensive damage. I have children that play outside on the front of our property too. It doesn’t bare thinking about what could happen to them, their safety should be your priority. This is a bit more than some overgrown foliage or a dead fox
