    Ocean Ave Town of Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    There is a very large and sharp branch poking out of the ocean and if a dog goes into the water and hits it that would be really bad.

    We live behind the Swampscott Middle School. A piece of a tree on the school property fell down last night during the storm, August 7 and onto our back yard. Can it please be removed?

    Thank you. Lisa Jones

    Please remove the tree in the Humphrey/Atlantic island. It is very difficult to see cars on Atlantic when driving on Humphrey towards Lynn - - especially now that the poles are installed. I used to pull over to the right for safety and looking to Atlantic on the left before continuing on Humphrey. Now I look quickly, hold my breath, say a prayer and gun it...

    11 Grant Rd Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott
    Large limb down, blocking the sidewalk and one half of the road. More has fallen since the initial drop and children walking to school have had to walk or bicycle down the middle of the road.

    9 Lawrence Rd Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    There are 3 trees on my street that have been shedding branches and one that has had multiple limbs fall on the power lines. 2 of the trees are on the other side of the street and the other tree on the odd number side where a limb overhangs my house and continues to shed branches. I have concerns given the size of the trees that more limbs will come down and have catastrophic consequences since each tree has multiple branches that are dying.

    125 Stetson Avenue Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    I would like to request that the DPW prune the town tree on the corner of Stetson and Barnstable. The branches are overgrown around the electric service to my house and when it is windy the branches strain the wires and also hit the house.
    Thanks!

    The tree with lead wires on it in front of 21 Elmwood Road is affecting the sewer line to the house. The drains hve been cleared of roots and debris every year. Now the clearing is needed only two months since the last one.

    15 Lewis Road Swampscott, Massachusetts, 01907 - Swampscott
    Although this matter was previously reported in April 2023, it appears no action has been taken. All along Lewis Rd. with attention to outside 15 & 27 Lewis Rd. there are numerous trees where the limbs have grown entangled with the power lines and need to be trimmed. Some of those trees do a lot of swaying on windy days. If this issue can be addressed and not just acknowledged that would be great. Thank you.
