Tree crashed into house on Woolstone Road

Looks like one of the Plane trees was rotten and fell into a house this morning, smashing through an upper window. It’s being quickly tidied up, and thankfully I hear no one was hurt.

I do hope the other trees are in better condition :frowning:

I have walked past this tree several times recently and had no idea anything was wrong.

I didn’t think there was anything wrong with them either! Mind you the huge ash tree in my garden that I had removed last year looked fine but had ash die back.

I assume the plane trees are council responsibility- presumably they should now check the others. And repair the damage to the house!

They definitely need to check the other trees.

I wonder if there’s been any cable laying by comms companies or similar? The pavement looks a little darned.

Or maybe just that the ground is so compacted? Many of our larger street trees were planted before roads were hard surfaced.

It looked to me as if the tree had raised and damaged some of the pavement as it fell over.
I don’t think there has been cable laying in this road recently. But you are right sometimes they cut through the tree roots.
