Inappropriate trees planted more than 40 years ago are overhanging houses, damaging cars, ground moss accumulation, causing pavements and walls to crack.

Reported anonymously at 11:12, Tuesday 21 September 2021

Small trees planted 40 years ago and I believe subsequently agreed to being inappropriate are now causing a risk to houses, people's safety, cars and require home owners to spend money and time rectifying the damage or mitigating the danger. On requesting quotes to 'cut back' the trees the cost would be into the thousands. These trees need a severe cut back, which would only be temporary and likely to result in harder growth or ideally remove and replaced with more slender or smaller trees.
