Many thanks to those residents who contacted me earlier today about damage to a tree which sits at the top end of Seafield Lane, near Perth Road.
One of the branches had snapped, but was still partially attached and resting on top of the street light on the opposite side of the lane. The street light glass casing had been broken.
As one resident put it, “Considering more bad weather is forecast, the tree branch does not look safe as it is stretching from the tree to the street light, accross the road.”
I immediately contacted both Street Lighting and the City Council’s Forestry Officer and am grateful for their immediate response. Street Lighting had taken steps to ensure no problems with the street light and the Forestry Officer has also replied saying that the tree is in the ownership of a local housing association and that the broken branch has now been made safe.
