I've had a look and couldn't find this topic covered anywhere so was hoping someone in here might know: Just what is so dangerous about the 'dangerous tree' that's roped off on the right side of the path going into Potters Fields from Tooley Street
? I wondered if it might be a particularly contagious tree disease but the overhanging branches and the dangly seedy flowery things (sorry, technical term) are still easily accessible so I'm stumped, if you'll pardon the pun...
It doesn't look particularly menacing. There are no obvious signs of anything having been done to the tree, I couldn't see any injection scars, drilled holes, netting or even any noticeable pruning. It just seems to be on the naughty step with a rope blocking off the neighbouring path offshoot and a sign saying "Dangerous Tree", for a few weeks now.
Does anyone know what the poor tree is accused of?
