I go along with what Martin says here, but only you can tell how severe it
is, for example is the tree dead, or is it 'winter'?
There is a very strong case of a Health and Safety matter here for people
attending graves and the possibility of the tree toppling and killing or
injuring someone. With all joking apart about being killed in a graveyard, I
feel that a letter to the Council, a clearly worded letter at that, pointing
out that they might stand to receive a very severe claim if nothing is done
about the tree, then you stand a good chance of having something done.
Don't forget, that once your letter hits the council's desk, 'something' has
to be done. This depending on the council as to whether it is 3, 5 or 7
And finish off the letter that you would support any claim should anything
happen because warning notice has been given.
Send your letter recorded delivery :-))
Helping my daughter and son in law on having two, if possible, but certainly
one tree felled which has is growing on Council public land which has grown
to be a danger to their house. Rather a large claim if it falls and
demolishes part of their house!!!!
