"There was a large load of brushwood and a small cherry tree dumped here. Someone must know who is responsible."
A spokeswoman from Mid Suffolk council said they take fly tipping seriously.
When notified of fly tipping it is standard practice to clear it within 48 hours. "It is difficult to witness people doing it," she said.
