I have had to request Walsall MBC to look and inspect their trees that run along the boundary line with homes located in Wolverhampton at Simmons Ave Ashmore Park.
I have had a very business-like response from Walsall and I have related it in full on this page. Would residents please note what Walsall have themselves determined. There is no guarantee that any of the trees backing onto gardens will be trimmed. The good news is that they are to be inspected. Its always that more difficult to get matters like these sorted out when the ownership of the tree or infrastructure is the property of another Borough Council.
I would like to record my thanks to Walsall MBC Clean & Green team for treating my request so professionally and with pace. Here is what they have written to me
“The trees in this area will be inspected from September 2015 with any necessary works scheduled to start from January 2016 as part of our five year cyclical tree management policy. The cyclical program ensures we meet statutory obligations as a Council and move from a reactive response to a proactive response which not only makes full use of resources but works in line with current budgetary constraints. Please see online here: www.walsall.gov.uk/trees for our tree management policy and information on how we manage our tree stock. I trust that I have answered the enquiry to your satisfaction and should you wish to discuss this matter or any other Clean & Green issues, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01922 653344 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
