FixMyStreet ref: 4865174.
There are three trees that are dead and liable to fall onto the A31. All three trees are on National Highways land. A local tree surgeon has said that the tree species are Ulmus x Holandica and have a fatal insect borne infection known as Ophiostoma Novo-Ulmi.
Thank you for making your report. We have asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issue. If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.
Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
Kind regards National Highways
