Trees haven't been cut back in the 25 years.

I have lived here 25 years and the trees in front of my house are far too tall now. They have not been cut back in all the years I've lived here. They are also growing through the telephone wires and could cause damage if not trimmed before they get full of leaves.

  • Hi you replied to me saying you couldn't find the offending trees. They are in front of 213/215 rating Lane. The branches are hanging over the drive where we park our cars. They really need trimming.

  • The trees have still not been cut back, other trees in the area have been trimmed but not the ones in front of my house. They are keeping the light out of my home and the branches are reaching right across my drive.

  • The branches on the trees reach right across my parking bay now and I can't park my car there. They take all my natural sunlight. They are way too big!!!
