Dear Cornwall Council,

I would like to know the number of trees which have been reported to have fallen onto motorways (and A roads, if possible) in your county over the past 10 years (not including 2014).

I would like this information separated by year and also any additional information you may have about each incident (e.g. accidents caused, reasons, etc.)

Yours faithfully,

Ms Elvin

Cornwall Council
