Details on fallen trees around the borough and action Ealing Council is taking to deal with them. This post will be updated with the latest information.
Currently across the borough, we now have had 51 (formerly 37) reports of fallen trees. Each incident is assessed and prioritised:
Priority A: Trees/branches that present an imminent risk to the public and those blocking major roads (10 incidents) – ALL NOW CLEARED
Priority B: Trees/branches that present an unreasonable risk to the public and those blocking roads and footpaths (21 incidents) – 3 to be done tomorrow
Prioirity C: Trees/branches that present an unreasonable risk but are away from roads and footpaths (12 incidents)
8 other trees reported and being inspected.
4 teams have been working on behalf of Ealing Council today targetting the Priority A incidents. These have now all been cleared.
Work on Priority B incidents have mostly been completed and the three remaining trees will be completed Saturday.
Priority C and any D incidents will be started once all over the above has been cleared.
Remember, there are still many hazardous trees across the borough and the Council urges the public to be extremely cautious around these obstructions. Aside from the obvious fallen trees and branches there are potentially many broken branches caught within the tree canopies so please exercise appropriate caution. At this stage it looks like the clean up will take up the majority, if not the whole of next week too.
If you wish to report a damaged tree or other incident to Ealing Council, you can now do so using the new Ealing 24/7 app from the Apple and Android App stores, searching for “Ealing 24/7”.
