Question

A constituent has requested that trees be pruned outside his house in Southbury Road, and after much disagreement over who has the responsibility for these trees, TfL said they would prune them in August 2013.  However, the constituent informs me that the tress have still not been pruned.  Please can you ensure that these trees are pruned as soon as possible.

On the presumption that the trees in question are those on the grass verge at the junction of the A10 Great Cambridge Road and Southbury Road, it is correct that TfL agreed to prune the trees, over the winter months when they were dormant. Unfortunately this work was delayed and TfL apologises for this. These works will now be completed within the next few weeks.
