There is a tree outside number 39 and 37 which in the summer grows small round apples (or something) which drop everywhere (hundreds of them) and dent cars below and cause a hugh slip and falling hazard to young people and the elderly. It been going on since I've lived on this road. Last summer it caused a chip in my windscreen and then a small dent on the roof of my car. I also know that over 4 people have had a injury from them. Last summer one of the apples dropped into my friends childs pram. Very unsafe. Please can you remove this tree before this spring/summer so the same problem doesn't happen. I cannot attach a photo as it isn't summer yet and they haven't grown.
