Dying tall trees- potential to become unstable

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 18:01, Mon 15 August 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3756152.

There are a large number of tall trees all around the roundabout that look like they are in advanced stages of dying. Brown fallen leaves, and orange rust coloured leaves on the trees. Everything outside of the roundabout is still green. It looks like the trees on the roundabout do not have access to sufficient water reserves during the drought due to being enclosed by tarmac on all sides. I am very worried they will become unstable and fall- landing on the road and road users. Could they be assessed please?
