  • Thanks for your response but the issues reported have not been resolved. The two very large trees still require being properly pruned back, they are overhanging properties close to the windows, blocking out light and with roots damaging and obstructing the footpath. They have not been properly pruned for very many years!

  • The trees were crown lifted. We do not prune trees because they are tall or block light or overhang property. We will look into the roots on the footpath to check for trip hazards.

    Thank you
